Abstract

National development, especially in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), contributes to the economic progress of a country, not least Indonesia. But the uneven development of ICT among provinces in Indonesia has resulted in a digital divide. In order to bridge the gap, a guideline is needed to indicate which provinces need more attention in ICT development. This research aims to measure and to classify the level of the digital divide that occurred in 34 provinces of Indonesia using Digital Divide Index (DIDIX) introduced by Hüsing and Selhofer. The result indicated that there was 1 province with the low digital divide rate, 19 provinces with the medium digital divide rate, and 14 provinces with the high digital divide.
