Views: 594

Alcatel-Lucent is bringing broadband based community centres in order to deliver high-speed Internet services to rural folk in Malaysia.

The broadband community centres can provide rural folk with basic telecommunication services, as well as facilities such as mobile banking. In India, farmers are using their local broadband community centres to conduct e-Agriculture activities, such as checking up on local prices of goods online and selling their produce over the Internet. While in Philippines, villagers are able to make even small transactions from their villages without having to travel to the nearest bank which may be quite a distance away.
