As developing countries build up their capacity to regulate privatized infrastructure monopolies, cost models are likely to prove increasingly important in determinimg the efficient cost of providing a service to a certain area or type of customer. But cost models require reliable information, which is oftern scarce in developing countries. Census data and the location of wire services together may help provide the minimum information a regulator needs to implement a cost proxy model, a promising regulatory tool for assessing the efficient cost of providing a utility service.
