Notes:
Using econometric models for Internet subscription and use, the authors found that estimation results indicating that price reduction will have a positive influence among existing Internet subscribers. "A model of Internet subscription itself, however, suggests that demand for access is derivative of education and work requirements." Survey data suggest that "isolation has little impact on Internet subscription, except the local isolation of Farms from their nearest town."
