The main goal of this session is to create a workshop space to discuss and change experiences including digital rights defenders, telecom representatives and CNs technicians and articulators and see how we can advance on spect rum regulation in order to advance CNs. Spect rum allocation is a very valuable resource for connectivity. The goal of this session is to highlight and call attention to the elect romagnetic spect rum as an essential part of digital rights and its viability to offer digital connection, inclusion, and criticism. Understand the st rategic importance of it in its many applications. Spect rum regulation for the advancement of connectivity and the work of community networks is often neglected by digital rights’ advocates and community networks’ organizations. Often times both types of advocates don’t coordinate action and under-emphasize the importance of regulation for the spread of community networks and connectivity.
