"Mobile telephony has had a positive impact on many countries in Latin America and the Caribbean by contributing to rural development. However, there are certain limitations to address in order for this technology to be accessible to more individuals in rural communities, in particular those living in the most marginalized conditions and who would benefit most from the opportunities that this technology can provide"
