This study examines the direct and indirect antecedents for the adoption of new technology in the emerging wireless cities of Singapore and Taipei (Taiwan). The results show that the development of Taipei wireless city relies on external factors that arise from top-down government policy and business strategies, whereas in the case of Singapore, it depends more on the internal factors and the market-driven participation of customers in particular. Policy-makers should give particular consideration to the divergent institutional environments that induce different types of expansion and varying degrees of efficacy in the adoption of new technology
