In this paper, we consider how Microdesic network can become a basis for WLL where no such facility exists. A case study of wireless LAN in Japan is analyzed, illustrating how the mechanism of popular participation works. Following this, through the analysis of Moore’s law and Gilder’s Law the availability of Micordesic technology is predicted. Consequently, a “Vender Model” is considered in order to analyze the feasibility of Microdesic in rural areas. Our conclusion includes a policy proposal of Laissez-Faire regulation and the use of Microdesic network for closing digital divide.
