What infrastructure do you have in mind? In the context of the poll I 
see the following as infrastructure components:

1. DNS Server
2. Web Server.

Please understand that the Semantic Web technology stack is still 
fundamentally about HTTP driven data access and integration. Thus, I 
struggle to see how it might exacerbate existing computing 
infrastructure challenges across nations with poor ICT infrastructure.

What makes this specific to Linked Data, beyond the issues already 
outlined in the poll ?

Linked Data, Semantic Web etc. are all about HTTP based data access, 
representation, integration, and dissemination.
