Interview with Erick Huerta, a researcher helping to bring internet access to indigenous communities in Mexico | Global Voices

At the end of June 2019, the Research Center in Technologies and Community Knowledges (CITSAC) was officially launched in Mexico City (CITSAC for its Spanish acronym).

One of the current projects at CITSAC is the installation of a satellite-based network that will provide community cellphone and Internet service at affordable prices in Metlaltónoc (in the state of Guerrero), one of the poorest municipalities in the country.

CITSAC is also working with the Tosepan Titataniske cooperative (one of the largest indigenous cooperatives nationwide, based in the state of Puebla, Mexico) to design their cellular coverage system.
