WP3 Increasing accessibility

Access to Internet is not equally distributed through the world. The gap between people with Internet access and those without it divides the society and slowed down the economic development. Access to the network depends on the development of the ICT (Information Communication Technology) in respected countries. In addition, the access to computers is also very important factor in diminishing the digital divide.

The WP addresses both aspects of accessibility (access to IT networks and access to computers). In order to increase the accessibility the project foresees different activities like a regional comparative analysis covering availability of frequencies, penetration of internet in rural areas, use of technologies and equipment (network and user), legal framework, social demography. Based on the results of the analysis a technical study will be elaborated determining potential solutions.

The partnership will also develop the necessary legal and economic framework and finally an end-to-end network adaptation proposal and implementation of the pilot solution for increasing accessibility in rural areas is foreseen.
