Abstract [en]

In the last decade the growth of mobile technology and distribution of mobile phones is much faster as compared to the distribution and availability of personal computers. By the end of 2008, there were 246 million mobile subscriptions in Africa and some African countries are approaching 100% mobile population coverage. In Ethiopia currently there are no visible initiatives that can support the delivery of public service by utilizing the mobile technology. The overall aim of the research is to investigate the current technological and social readiness in Ethiopia to successfully implement mobile service. To achieve our aim we conduct a web survey along with an interview. From our results we come up with the conclusion that currently mobile phones are the best option available to provide public service, which can be accessed by more peoples in Ethiopia. Also Ethiopia is technologically and socially ready to implement mobile services.
