Despite the evolution in deployed infrastructure and in the way that people access information, still there are those who are socially excluded and have no access to information due to their geographic location (e.g., riverside/countryside communities). This paper proposes an extension to a DTN architecture implementation to allow the dissemination of information in such communities, including educational short-video clips and audio books. The IBR-DTN architecture is complemented with a Bluetooth convergence layer, to facilitate the exchange of information over this short-range wireless technology, and with a bundle compression mechanism that aims at improving data exchange in short-lived opportunistic contacts happening among nodes.
