This paper present the role of the Internet and specifically the World Wide Web in Education and Business in Mexico. There are several projects for regional networks all around the country, one of them that covers part of the central and western region with the name "Red de Computo Centro-Occidente" (REDCCO) has received financial support to develop an information system that links libraries and general information from six universities, each one located in different states. The paper also presents a prospective view of the development of services through WWW and the possibilities of new projects to improve education and business practices. In 1996, TelMex's monopoly on long distance in México will end, bringing competition, yielding a significant reduction in costs, and creating new opportunities.
