Abstract ".people lack many things: jobs, shelter, food, health care and drinkable water. Today, being cut off from basic telecommunications services is a hardship almost as acute as these other deprivations, and may indeed reduce the chances of finding remedies to them."---UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan, in a keynote address to the International Telecommunication Union, Oct. 9, 1999.
