Enabling ICT for Rural India

The object of this report is to explain the problems facing rural access to ICT and to make recommendations to improve access. Over three months, from September to December 2004, our team visited nine ICT projects and met their stakeholders. These ranged from ‘outsiders’ such as state-level officials who want to use ICT to provide social services, commercial firms that supply telecommunications services, district level revenue collectors and NGOs to village residents and admistrators who are consumers, intermediaries, and producers of ICT services.
