|English term or phrase: regulated rural telecom services|
|In my text, "regulated rural telecoms" are contrasted with "the Baby Bells". What does "regulated rural" mean in this context?|
|English translation:"rural" = rural areas, i.e. the more remote parts of, in this case,|
essentially developing countries.

"regulated" in the sense of subject to government control and not a market totally open to competition, doubtless because these markets are not likely to be very lucrative or cost-effective and the state will wish to cap prices. If operators were to seek to cover their full costs, the price of the service would be too great for the potential users.
The idea is to bring telecom services to EVERYBODY, even if they live away from the towns
