What impact does the Internet have on everyday life in emerging markets? What effect does it have on people's ability to communicate, share information, conduct business, travel, learn and access healthcare? To answer these questions and gain deeper understanding of the potential benefits of Internet access, Ericsson carried out a qualitative study in Indonesia, South Africa and Rwanda. The study found real and tangible benefits arising from Internet access in emerging markets. These benefits apply across a nation's people, businesses and institutions. Access to the Internet enables a more efficient utilization of resources within businesses and institution through faster communication, faster flow of information and more efficient administration.
