It is considered in general that ICT is a support for a new economical development. But those considerations are mixed with misgivings, because the equipment of the population in ICT equipment is characterized by inequalities. Found in a situation of general economical and political transformation, the country is in front of a development marked mostly by the changes and market in a context of a general transition than the necessity for the population to master those new equipments. The situation was studied in the higher education environment in Tetovo (two universities and a secondary school) for having also a local and regional view on the use of ICT. The paper presents the results of a study which try to measure the level of penetration of ICT technology in this student environment and by them to their families. The survey, done during June-November 2010, shows the environmental situation and tries to compare it with the country situation. It seems that the diffusion of new technologies is characterized some times by inequalities between regions, generations, and technologies. The principal results concern the equipment and mode of use of the telephone (fix and mobile), the computer and the internet. The situation is considered for two groups: the students from higher education and the students from the secondary education.
