The Quest for an Information Society : Benchmarking the Regulatory Framework to Usher Kenya in to the Information Era

"The ICT sector is being examined in this paper from the policy, regulatory, and operational levels and examines the interplay of the regulator and its role to catalyse the business environment, the consumer demands and the resulting successes and challenges. The main thrust is to answer one question - Where is Kenya in its quest for development and exploitation of ICTs and what are the policy and regulatory gaps to exploit ICTs for growth towards a Kenya Information Society and how is the regulator positioned to chaperone Kenya to the information society ?"
