Flavor of the Month of May: If Mobile Phones Killed the Telecentre, What Next?

Inspired by the upcoming IREX Tech Deep Dive event about the Future of Public Access (If Mobile Phones Killed the Telecentre, What is Next for Public Internet Access?), let's start a another episode of our "Flavor of the Month Forum" on this topic. 

Back at the dawn of the digital divide conversation, leading organizations invested in telecentres — public spaces where people could access computers and learn about the Internet. Fast forward to today, where billions have a personal Internet in their pocket and use Facebook daily, there is a real question if we still need public access Internet services in the age of the mobile phone.

Join with us in this forum and share your ideas, thoughts and views as we ponder on the following questions:

  • Do you think mobile phones will render telecentres obsolete?
  • If mobile phones killed the telecentres, what is next for public Internet access?
  • What will tomorrow's public access venue look like? Or will we even need one?
  • What is the state of digital inclusion and what would it take us to get beyond access?
