This paper proposes the development of a second-generation digital terrestrial television wireless return channel for providing universal Internet access in rural areas in Latin America, namely DVB-RCT2. The paper reviews the first-generation return channel terrestrial standard DVB-RCT, and discusses which features of the state-of-the-art second-generation digital terrestrial TV standard DVB-T2 should be adopted for DVB-RCT2. Capacity and coverage performance estimations for DVB-RCT2 are provided.
