The author discusses the impact of Internet on social inequalities. The basic question is whether access to Internet decreases social inequality and increases life opportunities for marginalized people or, to the contrary, whether it the source of further deepening and justification of existing social inequalities.Based on the data on Internet use in Poland, he claims that inequalities can be observed not only with regard to the very access to the Internet but also to the quality of access and the ability to take advantage of it. The author demonstrates various ways of using the Internet which may lead to the improvement of life opportunities and help avoid negative effects of excessive use of the Internet..
