WILLIAMS, Idongesit. Infrastructure Development: Public Private Partnership Path for Developing Rural Telecommunications in Africa. Journal of Technology Management & Innovation [online]. 2012, vol.7, n.2, pp.63-72. ISSN 0718-2724. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-27242012000200006.
It is the quest of every government to achieve universal Access and service of telecommunication services and ICTs. Unfortunately due to the high cost of deploying infrastructure in rural areas of developing countries due to non-significant or no economic activity, this dream of achieving Universal access and service of telecommunications/ICTs have been stalled. This paper throws light on a possible Public Private Partnership framework as a development path that will enable affordable network technologies to be deployed in rural areas at a cost that will translate to what the rural dweller in a developing country in Africa can afford. The paper is a conceptual paper.
