The market is the best discovery process. There is no reason for anyone other than a supplier to expend resources on researching demand. In public policy, not all goods and services are created equal. Some are merit goods. Some have significant positive externalities. For these or other less justifiable reasons, public policy may seek to expand supply of certain goods and services. The focus of the first two chapters is on the strategies used by those at the bottom of the pyramid (BOP). In Chapter 1, the choices made by BOP users among fixed, mobile and public access modes are discussed.

On an average, 2 percent of those sampled reported that they use the Internet, while four percent reported that they use telegrams. Difficulties Experienced in the Use of Telecom Services This sub-section examines the difficulties that BOP users—both owners as well as non-owners—face in their use of telecommunication in obtaining, using and sharing phones.
