Telecentre Applications and Services

Project No 9RAS11040
Title Telecentre Applications and Services
Description Over a thousand telecentres were established in Thailand nationwide and 400 more are being established by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) under the Universal Service Obligation framework and its Universal Service Fund. In view of sustainability, these telecentres need close monitoring and evaluation in regular intervals. More importantly, stimulating user demand is equally important to provision of supply. To promote the ICT uptake or the demand, variety and diversity of ICT services and applications must be available. In this regard, this project aims to develop various telecentre front-end applications and e-services for telecentres in key areas such as education, agriculture, and community e-commerce. Besides, the project will also develop Telecentre Network Management System (TNMS) and applications as for managing and monitoring telecentres to be deployed. ITU and NBTC have agreed to jointly implement the project in cooperation with the Ministry of ICT, Thailand and in open partnerships with local and international partners.
