Summary This manual is the result of two years of research in which the systematization of experiences allowed us to identify important elements in the model that could be important for other people developing similar tools or approaches in other regions of Mexico or in other countries.
This manual is addressed to public policy implementers, as well as to social entre- preneurs and communities interested in implementing the community telecommunica- tion model for providing services for isolated areas.
This is just the rst step towards building a new model of social coverage in which the bene ciaries are also themselves the service providers. The experiences regarding its implementation have opened new perspectives and put forward new developments that increase the modelís reliability. The designers of the model have created a wiki with plenty of information and to which others can contribute by sharing the results and lessons of being part of this experience.
