Abstract

With more than 80% of post offices in Sub-Saharan Africa located in small- and medium-sized cities and rural areas, a well-managed postal network, in strong partnership with other providers of infrastructure and network services, could establish itself as a critical link that binds all other networks together, and helps move the "unconnected" out of the poverty trap.
