S. 1992. Transaction Costs, Telecommunications, and the Microeconomics of Macroeconomic Growth, Economic Development and Cultural Change, pp. 175–196. THE DIGITAL DIVIDE – WHAT IS IT REALLY? 11 Economic development and investment in telecommunications infrastructure go hand in hand, as evidenced by many developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. To some extent, the network effects resulting from increased investment in telecommunications infrastructure may have accelerated economic growth in these countries.

These users, in essence, subsidise the services provided for customers. Without the traditional services, there would be no infrastructure and the company simply would not be able to justify the cost of developing its own infrastructure, a situation that works well for Vodacom in South Africa. Vodacom has a long-term plan for building on this success and improving the growth prospects of their overall business while maintaining profitability. In particular, there are opportunities to expand the number of sites in South Africa (demand from potential franchisees currently exceeds Vodacom’s ability to expand), to introduce new services (such as data and fax) and to replicate in other countries.

Furthermore, the existing technology available is limited to provide voice and in some cases basic data services. This does not bode well for developing countries since it limits their access to quality information and knowledge creation and widens the knowledge gap between the developed and developing world. WHY NEW BUSINESS MODELS? One thing is clear, if developing countries are to enter into the information age they will need innovative and disruptive business models that promote and stimulate communications adoption, penetration and promotion.
