Since more than two decades, the concept of digital divide continues to draw a great deal of public attention. The term "digital divide" started to be used widely in the 1990s to express differences in computer access and infrastructures gaps between the "have" and "have-not." In the following years, the term has evolved beyond its initial definition as the fraction of population with the access to computers. Several other dimensions of the "divide" such as computer skills, education level, economic status, and legal regulations have also started to be considered.
