TOUDERT, Djamel. Digital Divide, Frequently Use of Internet and Benefits in Mexico. Convergencia [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.79, 003. ISSN 2448-5799.

Despite the need to validate the assumptions that intend to participate in the construction of the theory, the digital divide of frequent Internet users in the socioterritorial approach constitutes an unusual path. Considering this situation, this contribution has the objective of determining the validity of a multistage accessibility model moderated by the population size of Mexican localities. The research is based on microdata from the National Survey on Availability and Use of Information Technologies in Households, and for the validation of its hypothesis, it recurs to modeling with structural equations. Within the framework of this exploration, the multidimensionality and the high level of abstraction of the second-order constructs used in the research model are verified, revealing significant differences between groups of population size. Overall, the findings seem to show a frequent use that does not reflect in all cases skills of use and benefits use of the Internet.

Keywords : digital divide; multistage accessibility; frequent users; beneficial use; locality size.
