WiFi in Iraq

April 19th, 2003 · No Comments

USA Today has an interesting story relevant for emerging markets. It talks about how WiFi could help Iraq leapfrog directly into the broadband area. “By using Wi-Fi, parts of Iraq could skip the build-out of traditional phone and cable networks altogether. The situation is similar to how cell phone technology enabled huge swaths of the Third World to avoid regular land-line phone systems.”

The article also mentions briefly about the use of WiFi in remote places such as Bhutan and Mount Everest.
