Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
    This description of Peter Bloom's work was prepared when Peter Bloom was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
    Peter Bloom is democratizing communication technologies by using a government-owned mobile frequency to guarantee communication rights in isolated communities. He employs an innovative technological model that is low cost, foments local economic development, and is regulated by the communities themselves. Peter is thus spearheading a movement for rural communities to own their own telecom services, within the limits of the law, in a sustainable way.
