AbstractIncreasingly, remote and rural communities have pursued access to broadband networks. The networks provide new opportunities for advantageous video communications. In Canada both organizations and individuals in remote, rural, often Indigenous communities exchange audio-visual data via broadband networks. They use basic videoconferencing, multi-site videoconferencing, and video sharing online. However, social and technical challenges arise to constrain the growth of such uses in these communities.
