Perfect Constance, let me be a little critic and defend more the cause about Internet
Community Providers (ICPs) as a good practice and solution for connecting the next
1º - In the context about multistakeholder internet governance we will have a network
infrastructure that are will be created in collaborative mode, with synergies and the
focus in quality, netneutrality privacy and other principles that the citizens wants
2º - Instead of InternetOrg, Googles fibers/loon etc, we will have an infrastructure
managed in the last mile by the communities following rules and principles created
democratically and nothing prevents that others players can join to this initiatives even
facebook and google just need to change the goals of those networks to align with the
desires of the communities principles and rules.
3º - Digital cities and after this smart cities/smart citizens are the perfect combination
with ICPs, in truth ICPs is a fraction of the digital city, align with another level of
multistakeholder internet governance in city councils created in the same rules with all
parts of the local society. Its important that this group recommends to the countries
governments to create laws that guarantee this king of policy management with democracy
4º - Synergy is the word to create the networks that we need to reduce or even eliminate
the digital divide by using the governments and market to build networks that could be
used in a shared way (market, governments, academy and communities). It is true that the
internets economy impacts positively in GDP and if we want to resolve the problems of the
scarcity of the access we will need to put aside the old model to sell only access and
join that parts that really want to put down this kind of social and digital exclusion to
build and maintain those networks all together. What will make the sector of telecom
providers profitable will not more selling internet access but what are running above it.
Its important to say that its not allowed data caps, zero rating and anything that breaks
netneutrality or creates business models that hurts the consumer rights or even creates
another kind of exclusion.
Finally I rewrote our proposal and the summary in English to IGF's document but I
think that this email never got read when i sent. but no problem i send now again and
let's keep walking

Assunto: [Intersessional_2015] IGF 2015 Outputs - Best Practices and Policy Options for
Connecting the Next Billion - Next steps
This is to let you know that, as agreed by the MAG, the IGF 2015 Best
documents as well as the Policy Options for Connecting the Next
are currently being fine-tuned to incorporate comments made during the IGF sessions in
Joao Pessoa. The completed versions will be made available early December.
During its next meeting in 2016, MAG members will then discuss next steps and how they
would like to pursue IGF intersessional activities going forward, should the mandate of
the IGF be renewed. New themes of Best Practices Forums may be considered, as well as a
new approach for the continuation of the Policy Options.
In the meantime, 2015 outputs will be referenced in the Chair's IGF report. Once the
final versions are available (early Dec.), and to ensure global awareness, we will also
invite all MAG members to disseminate them throughout their networks.
Thank you and best regards,
