    Abstract

    RESUMEN Este trabajo aborda el análisis de la brecha digital existente entre comunidades autónomas españolas mediante el estudio de las principales características del proceso de difusión del uso de Internet en ellas. Concretamente analiza si los rasgos particulares de este proceso de difusión dependen de las características socioeconómicas de cada región, la calidad de sus infraestructuras y/o el nivel de formación de sus habitantes. Los resultados obtenidos permiten extraer conclusiones de gran interés si se desea influir sobre la trayectoria del proceso analizado, con el fin de evitar que algunas regiones queden fuera de la red de zonas y actividades que generan valor en el sistema. ABSTRACT This work investigates the digital gap among Spanish regions by studying the most important characteristics of the internet diffusion process within each one of them. In particular, we analyze if the process specific features depend on regional socio-economic characteristics, infrastructures quality and/or people instruction level. The obtained results allow to draw very useful conclusions for influencing on the path of the diffusion process, with the purpose of preventing some regions from remaining outside of the value-generating zones and/or activities network.
