This paper examines the imbalances in the availability and usage of communication and information technology infrastructure in the Côa’ Region. Based on an empirical study, the imbalances could be broadly attributed to differences in funding, management and technical expertise, exposure and awareness to available technologies, training, and other infrastructure like R&D laboratories/institutes and universities. In the organisations studied, the imbalances could be broadly attributed to differences in factors as industry, dimension, management education, but also lack to cooperation, workers mobility and reduced markets which are common factors in disfavoured regions.
