Abstract: The introduction of the Internet and its growing use in our societies in the 1990s was accompanied by major concerns on the existence of what was commonly labelled 'digital divide'. The possibilities that individuals did or did not have to access the web were, and continue to be, a determining factor with major personal, professional and social consequences. As a result of public and private policies on the introduction of technological infrastructures in most countries and, in particular, owing to significant progress in mobile phone technology, today the digital divide is being bridged at great speed when considering access.
