Middle-East Broadband, Phone services: need major upgrade, including countries like Kuwait, UAE(Dubai), etc. Here are some problems, for example, in Kuwait:
a) DSL service is expensive, ie $100 per month, whereas in USA, it is around $30 per month
b) Phone calls too expensive: For example, for calling from Kuwait to India, it costs $1.00 per minute.
Also, better and cheaper Internet, phone services, etc will have huge benefits for middle-east countries and reduce pollution, etc, as per http://gigaom.com/2008/12/03/why-government-should-meddle-in-broadband/
