Co-co is an internet provider company that brings internet access to rural communities in Mexico.

Overview

Co-co (short for Connecting-Company and stylized as co-co) is a Mexican internet service provider that brings internet access to rural and underserved communities in Mexico. The company was founded in 2019 by Iván Ordaz and Alejandro Hinojosa, and is headquartered in San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León, Mexico. Co-co provides internet to rural and underserved communities by allowing residents to purchase Wi-Fi tokens from local stores or small businesses at a low cost. Tokens range from 15 pesos for one hour of internet access to 30 pesos for one day, and business owners who sell the tokens make a 10% commission on each purchase. Additionally, hour access co-co tokens may also be purchased by redeeming ten used plastic bottles as opposed to cash.

In February 2021, co-co participated in the Facebook Accelerator Connectivity Program, an accelerator that helps startups improve internet connectivity and scale their businesses. Co-co has so far expanded to thirty-two communities within Nuevo León and brought internet access to 10,000 people.
