We outline basic characteristics of what would be the environment of the Internet services in view of fostering development in a poor nation. This study is based on the Internet state of art marketing in most developing nations. Also on the foundation of the utility theory and the fairness concept, network services provision is characterized to maximize the user’s satisfaction through a utility-fair resource allocation criterion. Then the utility values are used as performance measure of the service delivery to end-users. The end-user is characterize by a mapping of the utility value to actual benefits that foster a positive social change in one’s basic dimensions of life. We study this mapping using the leisure-labour model as it endeavours to explain why people seek some equity in the ability to access the Internet as a means of increasing ones’ happiness, to save money and time.
