Innovative Business Models for Closing the Internet Access Gap : Lessons for Policy Makers (Inglês)

There are over three billion citizens of the world who cannot access the internet. As digital development specialists, this is the challenge of our time. To make this happen we must create the safest, affordable, sustainable and inclusive (SASI access) means to access the internet for those left behind. The authors created a body of case studies, lessons, and decision tools to assist both government and industry to come together and close the digital gap. To help clients understand the internet value chain and the greatest risks and challenges, the report also provides a description of the supply chain from first mile to last mile access. Gaps may appear anywhere in the value chain. In summary the report provides infrastructure-specific recommendations. Finally, the business models reviewed provide a rich collection of lessons for policy makers seeking to intervene to deploy broadband in underserved areas. While most successful initiatives have been driven by the private sector, the report shows that public agencies have a crucial role to play by implementing effective sector regulation, addressing potential markets failures, and creating the conditions for an open, competitive broadband sector.
