In Chennai, India, I spoke to someone in an educational institution about starting a Community Network. He argued that access is no longer a problem as Telecom companies offer 3G and 4G services everywhere. He wouldn't listen to arguments concerning the cost and clever pricing models of access that indiscernably amass huge sums by microscopic extraction,  wouldn't listen to arguments about nominal and actual bandwidth.  He and some others take the position that a case does not exist for Community Networks here.

Happens to be an iconic opinion. It is a challenge to present arguments, articles such as this are of ample help.
