Dynamique des accès et des usages du téléphone et d'Internet à Dakar : quels liens avec l'aménagement urbain ?

Abstract : Since the turn of the century, communications play a key role thanks to information technology. We now talk of a global community of information, shrinking our planet to a mere ‘global village’. Nevertheless, the countries of the developing countries still lingering outside this network, have trouble catching up. However IT industries are picking up slowly in keeping with the reality of the social and economic developments in these countries. In Dakar, for instance, mobile phones have become increasingly popular while the Internet, the key element to a numerical revolution, has been rather slow to take root in the urban environment. Moreover, Dakar seems to suffer from a lack of balance when it comes to the activities of its historical city center, due to a seemingly malfunctioning of its territorial administration. Information technology which requires few material investments could reduce the effects of this imbalance and the deficiency in its infra structure, making it possible for a variety of activities to take place in a cyberspace. In fact, inspite of efficient connection of the country with the international networking, it still is not enough to cope with the malfunctions of its local infrastructure. Thus the network in Senegal does not reveal truly strong links between the Internet and urban territorial infrastructures in Dakar
