BasicInternet:Working Together


Jump to: navigation, search

This pages gives a short overview on how we work together in BasicInternet. It contains an introduction to the wiki, a link to meetings, and other relevant information. If you have questions, please add it here:

Q: How can I edit the Wiki

A: See BasicInternet:How_to_edit

Q: How do we handle confidential and secure information

A: We have established BasicAdmin:Home for confidential information

Q: What is InfoInternet, and why don't we call it Basic information?

A: InfoInternet is the free access to (compressed) text and pictures, and the paid access to "high-bandwidth" services such as video.
Facebook has established, having the service Free Basics. Thus people have regarded as a supporting organisation of Facebook. That's why we called the service InfoInternet.

Q: What about end-user devices? smartphones ? who wil provide them? how many?

A: We need to look at the villages whom we connect in Tanzania and DRC, and what people in these villages use. If the people we would like to address use SmartPhones, then we can start the pilots with BYOD.

Q: Who are the end-users of the information?

A: End-users are the people who don't see the value in digital information, or who can't afford access. My expectation is that we should concentrate on the younger (age < 40 years old) generation, as these ones need to find a job for living.

Q: How do we differ from "One Laptop per child"?

A: OLPC,, has seen that laptop/tablet provision is of limited reach. After some 3-4 months the interest for the tablets go down, if they are not supported with free network access.
