Abstract:
This paper analyzes economical and technological as- pects for service provisioning on varying networks. Though mobile networks are continuously evolving, the use of mobile broadband is and will be limited. Availability and affordability are two aspects, which are addressed in this paper through the introduction of basic information and low capacity (LC) services. The paper addresses how information provisioning and network-aware applications work together to achieve a digital society including everyone, rather than enhancing the digital gap. Initiatives like Facebook’s Free Basic and the Basic Internet Foundation and their approaches on LC-service and information provisioning are addressed. The second focus is on a pro- active approach for mobile applications (apps), adjusting to the network capacity and bandwidth limitations. The main results are recommendations towards a low-capacity Internet for everyone, supported by examples of LC-service provisioning, as well as network-aware apps.
