Abstract

This chapter reviews research from academic and major international organizational literature to examine and synthesize the current understanding of teledensity development in Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The obstacles to the growth of teledensity are discussed, and the importance and opportunities for growth of teledensity to solve priority problems and to realize sustainable development in LDCs are examined. The literature findings suggest that various policy, economical, financial, managerial, organizational, technological, political, and geographical factors are important determinants for growth of teledensity in LDCs. A variety of strategies to advance teledensity in LDCs are suggested.
