The introduction of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in a society is known to influence its gross domestic product and human development index. Still, access to ICT is not universal, with the problem being further aggravated in developing countries. In order to fill in this digital divide gap, we present our Sustainable Villages for Development (SV4D) architecture, which is a collection of hardware and software conceived to promote digital inclusion and consequently improve the quality of life of citizens of these underserved communities. We also present a set of preliminary performance evaluation tests carried out in the SV4D testbed deployed in Porto, Portugal, that shows the potential of our proposed architecture for deployment in developing countries.
