The Internet in the Developing Countries

The most recurring question about the development of the Internet is: ‘Can the Net and the new information and communications technologies be directly applied to all the social and economic realities in the world?’. The most banal answer is in the affirmative, as the Internet can be used by everyone and in any organisational context. In reality, however, we must keep in mind the wide gaps between the small number of rich, advanced and industrialised countries, on the one hand, and the large number of poor, somewhat backward and underdeveloped countries, on the other.
