An overview of how organizations and communities are using Osmo projects to create real-world implementations of low-cost, community-based cellular networks

This talk will cover network implementations, particularly in Latin America, and explore how they are using Osmocom project software to create low-cost, sustainable projects. We will look further at how these networks are started, organized, funded, and maintained, as well as the impact they have on local communities. We will also suggest some areas where the Osmo community could be more proactive in supporting these efforts.
