Abstract
WoredaNet is a Wide Area Network intended to link all woreda1 administrative units in Ethiopia. The technology presentsunique opportunities to facilitate the application of e-Government packages in the country. This study is a work in progressthat utilizes the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) for the understanding of acceptance andadoption of Information Technology in Ethiopian context. The study tries to further validate the model and assess acceptanceof the e-Government services put in place in the WoredaNet infrastructure in the country. The government of Ethiopia, whileutilizing the technology, is still in the process of extending it throughout the country. The study, thus, contributes to thesuccess of Services implementation in the WoredaNet by examining acceptance and utilization issues amongst the users sinceusers’ acceptance of the technology is crucial for its ultimate success.
