The Internet connects, nowadays, only half of the World's population.
Moreover, some of the people connected experience high costs or very bad
connectivity, leading to economic losses and plenty of missed opportunities.
In this talk, we will show the challenges that go into enabling people
to start their own community networks, making them sustainable and
providing continuous support to the local population. We will also
discuss the efforts made - and on top of them all the challenges - to
help local communities start their own internet exchange points, and
will discuss some of the success stories and of course, some of the more
problematic attempts at "growing the Internet".
