Abstract

This paper examines the Internet divide in Indonesia between 2010 and 2012. Data comes from the Indonesian national socio-economic survey (Susenas) 2010-2012, which comprises 3.3 million individuals, 750,000 households and 292 districts. Multilevel regression analysis is used to account for the effect of spatial inequality within district on the Internet divide. The results show the Internet divide deepens and widens between 2010 and 2012. Inequality of Internet access by age, gender, income and education deepens and widens across urban-rural, city-countryside, and remote island-mainland areas. District disparities in telecommunication infrastructures, human capital and education services are strong predictor of the Internet divide. The results highlight the importance of enlarging distribution of telecommunication infrastructures and education facilities to bridge the Internet divide in the country.
