What distinguishes Information and communication technology from IT?

Jul 8, 2:14AM EDT0

Hi, CALDWELLPENNY

What distinguishes Information and Communications Technology (ICT) from Information Technology (IT) is that ICT is the upgraded version of IT.

IT focuses on computer applications, hardware and algorithms used for storing, processing, and retrieving data. On the other hand, ICT covers all forms of computers that IT covers plus all forms of communications including wireless networks such as VoIP and the like.
