A Guerilla Mobile Network Springs Up in Indonesia

A Guerilla Mobile Network Springs Up in Indonesia | Edu Tech For Development | Scoop.it

The technology could provide a new model for self-managed “last mile” mobile coverage in the world’s hardest-to-reach areas, where traditional top-down telecommunications business models don’t work.
