Expanding Telecommunications in Rural Indonesia

Overview

GPOBA supported efforts to expand access to telecommunications infrastructure and services in rural Indonesia. Working in partnership with the Government of Indonesia and the World Bank, the pilot project redesigned the national universal service program into a public-private partnership approach. GPOBA funding was used to design, implement, and evaluate a program targeting villages that are poor and disadvantaged due to a variety of geographical and socioeconomic factors.
