Title: Catching up? Differences in 2G mobile diffusion in industrialized and developing countries
Authors: Koski, Heli

Keywords: Developing countries

Issue Date: Apr-2007
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: In developing countries, the launch of wireless communication technologies has resulted in a substantial improvement in the coverage of communication networks. It remains uncertain, however, if diffusion processes in developing countries follow a similar pattern and are governed by similar determinants as in industrialized countries. Present results suggest that this is indeed the case and that technological progress in developing countries can be fostered by changing the competitive and regulatory environment and capping service prices if possible.
