Dr. Carlos Rey-Moreno is a telecommunications engineer with a background in development studies. He has been involved in rural connectivity projects in underserved areas for more than 10 years, initially in Latin America, and more recently as one of the founders of Zenzeleni Networks, a community-owned ISP providing affordable communications in rural Eastern Cape, South Africa.
