A lot has been said about the digital divide that exists between the developed and the least developed countries (LDCs). Yet so little is being said about the opportunities that exist in the ICT Sector in the LDCs. This report takes a very close look at this group of countries and advances the argument that ICTs can play a catalytic role in getting these countries out of their current poverty trap. In that respect, a win-win outcome for both the investor and the countries is not in question.

The prospects of ICTs in the LDCs: 2004-2014

In order to determine the prospects of ICTs in the LDCs for the period beyond 2002 we have made projections for a number of country indicators and telecommunications sector statistics, as well as revenues and capital expenditures for the period 2003 to 2014. These estimates will permit us to prepare sector-wide financial and cash flow factors in order to ascertain whether the sector will be able to support the projected growth in LDC ICTs subscribers.
