  • ICTD in the Popular Press: Media Discourse Around Aakash, the
           “World’s Cheapest Tablet”

    • Authors: Preeti Mudliar, Joyojeet Pal
      Abstract: The quest for a low-cost computer has been among the primary motivations of innovation and practice in the ICTD world. We discuss developments using the case of the low-cost Indian tablet, Aakash, publicized as the world’s cheapest tablet, and situate these within a history of India’s quest for development through technology in the last two decades. We analyzed 212 articles on Aakash and found four dominant themes in the popular media: the cult of a technocratic leadership, the discourse of indigenous technology, the re-creation of the Silicon Valley dream, and the face of the marginal user. We argue that Aakash has gone from being a technology artifact to a device representative of Indian aspirations on several levels: as a forward-thinking state, as an ingenious entrepreneurial class, and as an energetic population whose success would primarily depend on access to technology.

  • On the Importance of Price Information to Fishers and to Economists:
           Revisiting Mobile Phone Use Among Fishers in Kerala

    • Authors: Janaki Srinivasan, Jenna Burrell
      Abstract: In this article, we revisit a study that has become canonical in ICTD, economist Robert Jensen’s study of mobile phone use in fishing markets in north Kerala. Jensen found that the use of mobile phones to share market price information made fish markets more efficient, while also improving producer and consumer welfare. Based on our own ethnographic case study in the region, we examine the historical, geographic, and political-economic conditions in which Jensen’s findings hold. We show that north Kerala’s coastal geography and prevalent credit relationships make it a special case of fish trading where fishers had the flexibility to optimize profits by selling at different markets. Fishers’ ability to leverage mobile phones for sharing price information derived from this flexibility. Moreover, we found a broader definition of welfare at play that went beyond increased income. Those working in various roles in Kerala’s fishing industry emphasized a spectrum of benefits from phone use, including maintaining trade relations, facilitating coordination, and protecting themselves during times of risk, vulnerability, or emergency. We suggest that parsimonious models, such as Jensen’s, can generate blind spots, which are problematic when such studies are used to draw broader conclusions about policy and technology design.

  • There When You Need It: The Multiple Dimensions of Public Access ICT Uses
           and Impacts

    • Authors: Araba Sey, François Bar, Chris Coward, Lucas Koepke, Chris Rothschild, George Sciadas
      Abstract: This article summarizes the findings of a study investigating the impacts of public access to information and communication technologies (ICTs). The research was conducted in seven low- and medium-income countries employing a range of survey, ethnographic, and experimental research approaches. The analysis revealed substantial first-order effects in terms of technology access, information access, and ICT skills development. Second-order effects in domains such as health, education, employment, and income varied considerably, although when public access users had a need in any of these areas, they were generally successful in achieving their goals. The study also found benefits among non-users, a group that includes former users, a largely unexplored dimension of public access.

  • A Longitudinal Study of Local, Sustainable, Small-Scale Cellular Networks

    • Authors: Kurtis Heimerl, Shaddi Hasan, Kashif Ali, Tapan Parikh, Eric Brewer
      Abstract: There are more than six billion active cellular subscribers, and they spend more than $1 trillion a year on communications. Despite this, hundreds of millions remain unconnected. One reason for this gap is the top-down nature of traditional networks, with large telecommunications firms deciding where coverage is to be available. This is enforced by the large capital investment required for cellular systems. Recent technological innovations have enabled cheaper cellular equipment. This shift is enabling new models of cellular telephony. Small organizations are suddenly capable of becoming service providers. In this article we ask, “How successful would bottom-up cellular networks be?” Essentially we argue for and demonstrate a local cellular network, employing existing infrastructure to operate at a lower cost and bring coverage to areas traditionally unable to support cellular deployments. We demonstrate this concept with an ongoing 16-month-long field deployment in rural Papua, Indonesia. This network is live, with 349 subscribers providing US$980 per month for the operator. We also show through user interviews that this network provides a valuable service to the community.

  • SmartBrowse: Design and Evaluation of a Price Transparency Tool for Mobile
           Web Use

    • Authors: Nithya Sambasivan, Paul Lee, Greg Hecht, Paul M. Aoki, Maria-Ines Carrera, Jenny Chen, Michael Youssefmir, David Cohn, Pete Kruskall, Everett Wetchler, Astrid Twenebowa Larssen
      Abstract: Mobile data use is on the rise globally. In emerging regions, mobile data is particularly expensive and suffers from a lack of price and data usage transparency, which is needed to make informed decisions about Internet use. To measure and address this problem, we designed SmartBrowse, an Internet proxy system that (1) shows mobile data usage information and (2) provides controls to avoid overspending. In this article, we discuss the results of a 10-week study with SmartBrowse, involving 299 participants in Ghana. Half the users were given SmartBrowse, and the other half were given a regular Internet experience on the same mobile phone platform. Our findings suggest that, compared with the control group, using SmartBrowse led to (1) a significant reduction in Internet credit spend and (2) increased online activity among SmartBrowse users, while (3) providing the same or better mobile Internet user experience. Additionally, SmartBrowse users who were prior mobile data non-users increased their web page views while spending less money than control users. Our discussion contributes to the understanding of how ICTD research with emerging technologies can empower mobile data users, in this case, through increased price and usage transparency.
