The main objective of this paper is to examine causality between ICT indicators and income inequality in Iran during the period 1994-2013. In other words, does the information and communication technologies, increasing income inequality in Iran or vice versa, income inequality is causality the availability of information and communication technology? And is there a feedback between them? To analyze, we use annual time series including unit root test and two methods: casual bounds test approaches based on unrestricted error correction model (UECM) (Pesaran et al. (2001)) as well as Toda and Yamamoto's Granger non-causality test (1995). Findings show a one-way causality from income inequality to all ICT indicators. This means that income inequality in the country will lead to the expansion of the digital divide.
