The same is replicated across the globe. Many people are of the notion that
when we talk about developed countries or areas then we mean connectivity
is 100%! This is farthest from reality. We need CNs across the globe to
reach the unconnected… these are what may be termed as difficult to
connect people; the people ISPs won\’t touch as doesn\’t impact their bottom
line positively YET when we look at the SOCIAL PROFITS that can be derived
from a forgotten community getting connected… availing telehealth care,
on demand lessons, live classes… The social dividends are immeasurable!
