Revisiting The Village Telco

Event: Friday, January 6th at 12 Noon EST

Village-Telco-Logo-200 Friday, January 6th we will once again be joined by Steve Song of The Village Telco. Steve last appeared in November 2009 to tell us about The Village Telco and their innovative, open source hardware called the Mesh Potato. Since that time Mesh Potatoes have started shipping and the project has made considerable progress.

In addition, Steve recently appeared at an African conference presenting on the importance of RF “white spaces” to the future of telecom in Africa. The white spaces debate there is very similar to similar issues faced in North America.

The initial question must be , “why does this matter?” Will the entrenched powers lock everyone else out of the RF landscape through the regulatory system? Or will a more open approach prevail?
