2018 · MullenLowe SSP3 for Ministry of Communications & Technology


In the last years, the Government of Colombia, through the Ministry Of Communication and Technology, achieved the largest penetration of Internet in the history of the country.Regardless of all the efforts that have been made, many people in different regions are still having no access to Internet or Smartphones, due their remote geographical location.How can we get all those people closer to all the information they’re missing?
