Mobile ownership

The rise of mobile telephony in Honduras since the entry of the first two transnational companies into the market and after the displacement of the state company in the mobile telephony business (Tigo y Claro) private companies is remarkable. "For 2015 it is estimated that there are more than 7m active cell phones, practically one per inhabitant. That is to say, today in Honduras a boy or girl uses a tablet very well, handles a cell phone well, surfs the Internet, although the digital divide still continues its path of inequality and digital illiteracy" (Rodriguez, 2018).

But the environment is not only mobile telephony: "official statistics reveal that between 1996 and 2005 the average number of households that had at least one television receiver went from 31.6 percent to 62.7 percent, that is, it doubled in just nine years. This phenomenon is similar in terms of access to telephone communication and computers, today from the finest technology, the SMARTV is the sensation in homes of upper middle class, and in popular neighborhoods." In contrast, families living in poverty and social exclusion are debating whether to pay for a residential Internet account or to buy goods of first necessity, and have been heard saying "we can live without certain foods but without Internet and mobile communication who knows" (Suyapa, 2018).

The impact study of telephony and the Internet in the social environment, broadens this problem and according to Lizama (2016), "although the emergence of new technologies produces changes at all levels of society, it is true that those who are most affected, positively or negatively according to the nature of the change, are those that were born at the time of its implantation in society, as well as the subsequent generations that live adapted to the new environment and develop together with these technologies." In this aspect, we have to mention that the development of the Internet and mobile telephony in the country and its commercial development started around ten years ago, it is analysed that the youngest population and of the different educational levels of the country, should be considered as the main subjects in the digital transformation of the country, as well as offering job opportunities and the improvement of the quality of life.
