Enabling universal Internet access is one of the key issues that is currently being addressed globally. However the existing Internet architecture is seriously challenged to ensure universal service provisioning. This technical report puts forth our vision to make the Internet more accessible by architecting a universal communication architectural framework combining two emerging architecture and connectivity approaches: Information Centric Networking (ICN) and Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN). Such an unified architecture will aggressively seek to widen the connectivity options and provide flexible service models beyond what is currently pursued in the field of universal service provisioning.
