Digital Divide is about all other divides, it's not just a digital divide, it's a divide in education, it's a divide in health, it's a divide in infrastructure, it's a divide in power.' Sam Pitroda, CEO of WorldTel Ltd. :The digital divide expresses the social, economic and geographical inequalities witnessed across the world in the area of access and use of digital technologies and software applications . These inequalities are even more acute we consider the ever greater importance played by Internet and multimedia as more and more individuals in both rich and poor countries integrate this medium in their social and professional lives.To bridge the divide, infrastructures capable of offering basic telecommunications services have to be created. We have thus witnessed, worlwide, over the past decade, the built-up of fixed and wireless networks offering a large selection of communication services
