"The majority of humans does not have a telephone" said Marc Furrer,
director of the Swiss Federal Office 
of Communications (BAKOM) - http://www.bakom.ch/en/index.html? - at a press
conference in Biel 
(Switzerland) concerning the WSIS in Geneva in december 2003. 
In developing countries there is one telephon main-line for 200 persons. In
Bangladesh the costs for a 
Computer are about eight average yearly incomes. In Nepal an
internet-connection costs about 278 
percent of an average monthly income – compared to 1,2 percent in the USA.
