The success and failure of policies and regulations need to be studied under such a backdrop. Each nation would have its specificities, and comparisons between nations may often be difficult. It is this
difficult task that the book takes up. It has done a great job in reminding us that the telecom demand is stronger than what most envisage. It points to the constraints posed by policies and regulations,
especially in reaching the BoP. It gives enough examples of what would indeed be possible only if one gets the policies right. It is a great book for those who influence policy and regulation. It is an interesting reading for those who are looking for novel business models to expand the market. Finally, it is a worthwhile reading for scientists and technologists who do not often understand the constraints posed by policy framework in limiting utilization and proliferation of technology.
