Bringing in the Internet through - house of worship place
Going to the past history of the internet itself, previous articles have shown many rural places (or countries) are far from the benefits from the internet. Among the reasons as to why this occurs: (1) is certain places are remotely located, (2) are in mountainous part of their country, (3) lacks proper wire-line phone services, and (4) the imbalance of infrastructure that exists between rural and city environments.
Creating internet hubs in rural and remote place, by using their existing worship places like temples, churches, and mosques. These worship place acts as hub, which then can attract local people to use the internet. Other place which can act as an internet hub is the local market or rural local cafes. The use of these local worship place acts as a telecentre which then help locals to use the Internet in rural areas which can the help exchanging of information (among the benefits of the internet), which is relevant to human resources and growth capital in a rural environment.
Internet building structure (i.e. worship place)
The propose solution uses the worship place, as it is the common place most rural people visit. Most worship place has tall towers (or at least proper building structure). Using this structure and towers, we might be also able to provide wireless technology extensively as the coverage depends on the distance between Advanced Access Points (AAPs) and its baselines.
These worship place can also be connected to Project Loon which is "a research and development project being developed by Google X with the mission of providing Internet access to rural and remote areas. The project uses high-altitude balloons placed in the stratosphere at an altitude of about 18 km (11 mi) to create an aerial wireless network with up to 4G-LTE speeds."
