  8. 8. Connectivity to Reduce the Gap • Internet became primary sources of news due to the remoteness of the village. • The nurses use the Internet to search for medical and pharmaceutical information. • Farmers use the Internet to find crop disease information. • Tourists can send e-mail, update their travel blogs, and upload photos. • Tourist guides use e-mail to communicate with their clients and to get referrals. • Internet chat and VoIP to communicate with friends and families.Copyright © 2007 MIMOS Berhad, page 8 8
  9. 9. Imagine … If We Can Bring Value to the Community The Success Story of e-Bario One of the most important is that to be successful, ICTs cannot just be “dropped” into a rural area but must be part of an integrated approach that takes into account the community’s information needs and capacity to absorb use new technology.Copyright © 2007 MIMOS Berhad, page 9 9
