Dear Leslie - Thank you so much for this excellent comment and joining the conversation. It is certainly true that without access to the right telecommunications infrastructure, there can be no use of the technologies described in the blog. The World Bank Group encourages client countries to develop competitive telecommunications markets to increase coverage and bring the costs of service delivery down. Furthermore, the arguments that apply to the public sector support for delivery of electricity and water services in remote areas can also be applied to telecommunications technologies. Exactly how and when the public sector should intervene is part of the subject of the study that we are launching.  Cheers, Julian
