Hi Coenraad,
I don´t have a list, but I know a partner organization (ANID) that have a strong relationship with rural movements in Brazil, connecting them.
They organize small ISPs to share backbones/backhauls infrastructure and to buy broadband wholesale. Then they charge %  of the broadband for digital inclusion. With this, they connect rural areas, poor people etc. I believe they have over 300 points of internet access. I´m very impressed by their work.
Here goes their contact: presidencia at anid.org.br
All the best,

Hi All

Does anyone have a comprehensive list of rural access deployments
including how they were funded, managed or whether facilitated by
government, regulation, NGO or private sector?

If not, is anyone keen to assist with building such a list? If so,
please get in touch.
