As WSIS just took place a couple of weeks ago, I just wanted to ask to the
ones who went or the ones who followed it, if there were any important
conclusions or statements on Community Networks or Community Connectivity.
Any information or document would be of great help!

Dear DSA Members,
On behalf of Kalpak, I would like to share with you that this year the DSA
is excited to welcome 29 regulators from 22 different regulatory bodies in
attendance at our Sixth Annual Global Summit event and Regulator Workshop
(see attached list for specific names). This is an exciting feat for the
Alliance, as it is not only the largest number of individual regulators we
have ever had attend the Summit before, but it is also the largest number
of regulatory organizations to participate.
As such, we would encourage all of you to help us continue to get the word
out about the Global Summit. There is no other conference discussing modern
and innovative spectrum management methodologies, including dynamically
shared and license exempt operations, like the DSA’s Summit. Please feel
free to share and repost the Alliance’s LinkedIn
with your associates and feel free to use the attached PDF invite when
encouraging any clients, customers, or colleagues to attend.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I am sharing some of the key points of the Digital Inclusion Coalition
Guidebook as part of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance supported
by the Media Democracy Fund focused on the United States
Many of the speakers representing various cities, Philldelphia, Portland,
Kansas City, Baltimore, Washington, LA, Cleveland, Austin, Chicago, Etc
work in collaboration with libraries and community networks, Many of them
provided a range of training besides low cost internet connectivity.
Key is the coalitions they created
-Corporate sponsorship Google Fibre
Digital inclusion coalitions exist to promote conversation, professional
development, strategically aligned programming and advocacy.
• Coalitions should meet regularly, set goals and progress toward those
goals through strategically identified activities.
• A coalition’s leaders should include local voices that lend trust,
credibility and a community-centric perspective to the coalition’s efforts.
• All coalitions need resources to thrive (particularly funding) to pay for
the coordination of coalition efforts.
• Coalitions are increasing awareness of digital inclusion, local barriers
and current approaches to the work.
• Coalition leaders often do not view their activities as advocacy, but
they do educate local policy makers and community leaders.
• Coalitions strive to meet the needs of their members through
peer-to-peer sharing, collaborative goal setting, awareness and resource
development. • Coalitions themselves often do not conduct digital inclusion
programming, but members of the coalitions form partnerships, strengthening
• Leaders agree that local government participation is important to
success, but there are advantages and disadvantages to their participation.
