Item description for Village Phone Replication Manual: Creating Sustainable Access to Affordable Telecommunications for the Rural Poor (Ict Task Force Series) by David Keogh; Tim Wood...

Why is it such a challenge to provide telecommunications to rural areas? High initial infrastructure investment, relative low call volumes, high maintenance costs due to harsh environments, cash box collection needs, cash security costs (for coin operated phones), card availability (for prepaid airtime systems), technical illiteracy, remote locations, and high transportation costs are just some of the impediments to providing rural telecommunications access. Village Phone addresses these issues. It provides a profitable new market niche for telecommunications companies, new and profitable micro-enterprises for rural poor Village Phone Operators, and affordable and accessible access for communities.

Reviews - What do customers think about Village Phone Replication Manual: Creating Sustainable Access to Affordable Telecommunications for the Rural Poor (Ict Task Force Series)?

Great Resource!  Sep 21, 2007
This manual is far more comprehensive and inspiring than I imagined it would be. The Authors, David Keogh and Tim Wood provide a great step-by-step guide intended to help catalyze a worldwide Village Phone movement!

Building on over a decade of success with GrameenPhone in Bangladesh, Keogh & Wood document and demonstrate how the Village Phone framework can be used to replicate successful Village Phone programs in other developing countries, starting with Uganda.

Whether you're a Telecommunications Company, a telecommunications service organization, a microfinance institution, a Non-Government Organization, or an individual entrepreneur, this field tested guide is for you.
