Abstract

This paper shows how mobile phone technology can influence the development of egovernance in emerging countries. We evaluate the conditions under which consumers really engage with m-services. We argue that the lower cost of m-infrastructure is more appropriate than the Internet-based structure that prevents large part of the population access to ICT. However, m-technology should not be separated from the Internet but be integrated allowing emerging country to leap frog the technological cycle.
