With the growing need for ubiquitous connectivity, it is essential to develop business models which better fit noncommercial wireless communications services, particularly Wireless Community Networks (WCNs). Developing these business models for WCNs is challenging due to their public-private hybrid nature, lack of strong commercial incentives, high uncertainty, and the high complexity of the relationships among key business partners. The purpose of this paper is to propose a framework for developing public-private hybrid business model for WCNs and test it using several case studies. The framework addresses several elements such as product innovation, customer relationships, infrastructure management, and financial aspects of this emerging business. This framework would serve as a guide for WCNs to achieve digital, social, and economic inclusion for particular groups such as rural residents, underserved communities, and the mobile workforce. In addition, it should have a positive impact on addressing the pressing issue of the digital divide.
