Over the past 15 years, the media and telecommunications industry transformed the forms and the flows of communication in Brazil. Although the Internet's reach is still limited to a reduced number of people (45% of the population, according to the ICT Households 2011), the media and telecommunications industry is among those that register the highest growth, due more recently to the inflow of telephony companies in the sector of content distribution.
Recent research also shows that there is a regular and steady growth of households equipped with computers, which in 2011 were found in 45% of Brazilian homes, compared to 35% the year before. According to data gathered by a national research foundation (FGV) 60 million computers were in use throughout the country in 2011, with the possibility of reaching 100 million in 2012. These data show the importance of the Conference theme to contemporary Brazil.
