A glimpse of several underprivileged and underserved communities in Guanajuato, Mexico and the problems they face without substantial access to the outside world. We see those from Concero Connect venture into these communities to deliver radically affordable broadband connectivity for the first time, a model they hope to recreate in communities around the world. Concero Connect interacts on a personal level with the people of these communities, assessing the need and providing a way for a communities to connect and for the underprivileged to enhance their lives. We watch as both old and young are awed at the possibilities a computer and a connection can bring into their lives.
