In the year 2000, Mexican government created the e-Mexico National System which started the public policy to promote Internet Access among the population, as well as the development of government contents and services. Internet penetration has grown from 20.2 to 40.6 million users. In this presentation I show the e-Mexico networks created to provide public and free Internet access to more than 10 million users. The rest of the Internet users come from the main Internet service providers such as Telmex and Cablevision. Cinvestav developed the e-Government White Paper: Mexico 2012 with a comprehensive compilation of representative international and domestic indicators such as the United Nations e-Government Survey 2012 and data from CEPAL, OECD and the World Bank as well as data from Mexican institutions like the Federal Statistics Institute (INEGI), the Ministry of Communication and Transportation, the Mexican Internet Association and Deloitte Mexico. The White Paper's purpose is to present a general panorama about eGovernment's contribution to the economic development with social parity and to promote democracy.
