ISOC Creates Digital Divide

ISOC has announced a $75 annual membership fee which will mean that the bulk of the developing world will no longer be able to have rights as voting chapter members.

As one chapter representative from Equador stated: "Impossible to pay USD 75... this is only another way to say digital exclusion and Internet only for those who can pay and live in countries that can afford such expenses."

Stay tuned for continuing developments. For now you may vent your fury by contacting:
