We open Chapter One of Breaking the Digital Divide: Implications for Developing Countries with an introduction on the Digital Divide. In order to capture the spirit of the Net, in Chapter Two we analyse the problems of valuation of the growth, which started at the beginning of the 1980s, by considering three kinds of studies: one provided by OECD, which every year writes a report about technology; another by the number of on-line users registered by NUA in all continents; and finally, Network Wizard checks on the number of hosts in the world every six months, as reported by RIPE on Europe every month. We will compare the hosts number worldwide with the American and the European hosts in order to underscore the large development of the Internet and its usage in the industrialised countries.
