ABSTRACT
<p>What is the basis for a progressive, market-driven migration from e-governance to universal broadband connectivity that local users will pay for?</p><p>DakNet, an ad hoc network that uses wireless technology to provide asynchronous digital connectivity, is evidence that the marriage of wireless and asynchronous service may indeed be the beginning of a road to universal broadband connectivity. DakNet has been successfully deployed in remote parts of both India and Cambodia at a cost two orders of magnitude less than that of traditional landline solutions.</p>
