For developing regions keen to seize the opportunities of the Networked Society, ICT facilitates education, financial services, health, safety and security, and livelihoods, in support of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). With more than six billion mobile subscriptions, innovative approaches are still needed to address the needs of the “last” billion users at the base of the pyramid. Ericsson takes a holistic approach by combining technology, global presence and experience in public-private partnerships. By combining competency in developing new business models, with novel approaches we can replicate and scale successful initiatives for the greatest possible impact on the Millennium Development Goals.
