Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Network (VDTN) appears as a particular application of the Delay-Tolerant Network (DTN) concept to transit networks. In this paper we analyze the use of a VDTN to provide asynchronous Internet access on a rural remote region scenario. Through simulation we evaluate the impact of a shortest path based movement model on the performance of four DTN routing protocols in respect to message delivery probability and message average delay.
