Mobile phones have an especially dramatic impact in developing countries— substituting for scarce fixed connections, reducing transaction costs, increasing mobility, broadening trade networks, and facilitating searches for employment. Our approach: Business Information Centres going mobile UNIDO is utilising mobile telephony to take the services of the Business Information Centres out into the surrounding community, enabling: Women entrepreneurs to build a business as ‘village phone       operators’ Farmers to make good choices based on market conditions Rural poor to receive banking services they otherwise couldn’t       access Stimulation of locally       designed mobile based solutions

We find that mobile telephony has a positive and significant impact on economic growth, and this impact may be twice as large in developing countries compared to developed countries.
