Problem description: This thesis focusses on the societal challenges related to Digital Inclusion. Though mobile networks have the potential of reaching everyone, the reality is that roughly 3.5 Billion people are not connected to the Internet. Being left-out from the Digital Society removes the capabilities for reaching higher levels of the Maslow pyramid, e.g. meaningfull work.

The thesis will focus on innovation for all, based on the concept of free access to information. The hypothesis is that access to information, being text, pictures and local video, and the connectivity to a local village server will foster digital inclusion. Special attention is drawn to content fostering innovation for all, and the relation to the Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030
