There is no internet in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh today. Although an XO laptop may function without internet, can XO laptop deliver complete learning experience without internet connectivity? Can OLPC make key contents available and accessible in areas with no access to the World Wide Web?

OLPC thought about this and provides solutions for areas where no internet connections available. The OLPC server software, a stack that can be installed on a PC or server, will allow us to accomplish this goal.  The school server can be a local content repository, including back-ups, and content managemetn. XOs can connect to the server via wireless routers.  Contents can be delivered from these server to XOs. However, this solution requires local “system adminstrators” to install, configure, and maintain local servers.
