One in two people in Spain admits that it is impossible for them to live without the internet. This is stated in the dossier 'Les bretxes digitals' published by the magazine Barcelona Metropolis. We invite you to read the contents.

Some data from the dossier 'Les bretxes digitals' of the Barcelona Metropolis magazine reveal that 80% of families in Spain have a computer ; 99.5% mobile, and 95.9% have a fixed or mobile connection. In Catalonia, according to Idescat, 97% of households already have stable internet access. The figures show a sense of normalcy, but there are digital gaps: the report shows that there are more than 3 billion people worldwide in inequality in the digital realm . This means that, "to talk about connection we must take into account other dimensions, improve analysis, fine-tune and look between the cracks," the document states.

Prominent professionals in the sector such as Genís Roca , Lucía Velasco , Esther Paniagua , Héctor Gardó , Albert Sabater Coll and Michael Donaldson Carbón shell out the different digital gaps we find and put them in relation to other axes of inequality such as work, training, health, social class, participation or learning. The biggest differences appear when analyzing what use is made of the internet, which is directly associated with digital training. The influencing factors are mainly age, level of education, income and employment status. You can read the full dossier here .
