This document is the final report of a study that had a dual purpose: to contribute to an understanding of the relationship among poverty, digital poverty and mobile telephony’s potential contribution to improve the standard of living for the poor, and to move toward better statistical analysis of the cellular telephony in the poorest sectors of LAC. For a more in-depth assessment, a detailed analysis was done of the evolution of these variables in Uruguay, where fairly reliable statistics are available.
