A system and method for distributed uploading of content in low connectivity environments is disclosed. The system includes a mobile application configured to upload to the internet by copying the content across multiple mobile devices and using the first available connection across all devices for completing the upload. The propagation of the content between the devices could be algorithmically controlled to optimize for upload reliability and latency, at the expense of distributed storage. The system increases the chances of successful upload and freshness of the content originating in poorly connected devices.
