Hide / Show Abstract

Universal service is a concept that has increasingly become focused upon connection of individual households to the public telephone network. The objective of universal service has come to be equated with a telephone in every household. In most developed countries, this objective has come close to being achieved and those families who do not have a telephone are few in number: typically those in remote areas or inner cities, the very poor or those who, by choice or by misfortune are without a private telephone service.
