We document the existence of a relationship between the adoption and quality of internet service and terrorism in Colombia. We found that terrorism, measured as terrorist attacks, has a U-shaped pattern relationship with the penetration rate of the internet service, and a negative correlation with the quality measured as the download speed. We also show that this pattern of relationship between terrorism and internet service is an historical correlation in the municipalities of Colombia where the attacks happened.
