Dr. Mazlan Abbas MIMOS Berhad Can WiMAX be the Broadband Solution for Underserved Areas ?
Social & economic impact of ICTs Impact gap Intensity of ICT adoption Adoption gap Diffusion of ICT infrastructure Access gap PHASE 1. Employ indicators of ICT diffusion PHASE 2. Employ indicatorsof intensifying adoption PHASE 3. Employ indicators of socio-economic impact Understanding the Digital Divide • Barrier to entry due to literacy level and language • Complexity of computers Socio-economic value of ICTs • Social & Economic • value of ICTs • Poor Value realization due insufficient value creating content • Connectivity • High cost of deployment Time © 2008 MIMOS Berhad.

Why Internet Access is Essential? • Internet became primary sources of news due to the remoteness of the village. • The nurses use the Internet to search for medical and pharmaceutical information. • Farmers use the Internet to find crop disease information. • Tourists can send e-mail, update their travel blogs, and upload photos. • Tourist guides use e-mail to communicate with their clients and to get referrals. • Internet chat and VoIP to communicate with friends and families. © 2008 MIMOS Berhad.
