Bringing the Internet to the village

From AsiaMedia comes an article about an initiative by Grameen Phone to create community information centers in Bangladesh.

Several themes from this article seem relevant to our recent discussions:
  • Microfinance
  • Reaching out to rural areas
  • The promise of the Internet to make economic change
What do you think about this story? I thought it was interesting that their ideas for growth was mobile broadband instead of considering the phone as a platform in and of itself.
