Abstract: The shared access model through telecentres, phone kiosks or multiple community centres has become the standard to cope with financial problems in providing ICT service to the poor in rural areas of many developing countries. By an investigation into the Grameen Village Phone program in Bangladesh from a sharing perspective, this study suggests an extended sharing model. Sharing can be applied not only at the access points, but also can be applied at all stages in the process of ICT services provision, including function sharing and cost sharing at each function. This study also proposes an action framework towards implementation of the extended sharing model for ICT projects for the poor.
