BAVOLEO, Bárbara Inés. Internet contours and paths in a hyper-connected country. The state’s role in technology diffusion in South Korea. Punto Cero [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.26, pp. 11-18. ISSN 1815-0276.

This paper deals with the history of the Internet in South Korea and the state’s role in the process that led to one of the major extensive and intensive penetration in the world. The plans and policies that were implemented, since the nineties until now, resulted in one of the world’s most wired environments and reduced significant access gaps. As it spread and became important in the public debate, were tested measures of control and censorship of the net. The objective is to identify patterns that promote equitable access to technology. The case of South Korea helps to suggest policies for countries that still have much of their population excluded from the digital world.

Palavras-chave : Internet; technological infrastructure; South Korea; public investment.
