Abstract [en]

The implementation of rural Information Services (IS) faces anumber of challenges in most developing countries. These challenges includeaccess and ownership of technology, imbalance in availability of resources,and technological skills. Via an analysis of the literature, this study tries toinvestigate the digital divide found between poor and rich people, the status ofinformation and communication technology (ICT) as well as marketinformation services in Bangladesh, as one of developing countries and fromwhich many lessons can be learned. Empirical investigation also uncovers theassociation between the adoption of technology and satisfaction, technologypreferences regarding supply and demand and the barriers to accessingtechnology. Based on the findings, a conceptual integrative framework forimplementing a rural IS in developing countries is proposed.
