Abstract

In this paper we analyse the determinants of adoption of new technologies for local area networks (LAN). By considering a sample of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) operating in Italy, we focus in particular on the determinants of their decision to adopt Fast Ethernet. The empirical evidence shows that both expectations and network effects significantly affect the probability of adoption.
