Abstract : Brittany is the most western European peninsula. Rich from information and communications technologies inventions, e.g. the Minitel in 1979, the Regional Council launched from 1995 onwards computing programs in order to sustain information superhighway and users skills in computing and practicing the Internet. In the meantime the Regional Council became owner of fiber-optic fragments. In 2006, in the report entitled -Bretagne 2.0, an ambition for a digital Brittany- the technical infrastructures were massively subsidized in order to reduce the -digital gap-. All of these public policies were designed for politically managed territories. In the same time, the Regional Council supports a social innovative actions on community informatics. For instance -BZH Network- a private initiative launched on the Internet by a Breton from Tokyo in the end of 2005. To date, this network counts more than 3, 000 Bretons from the diaspora i.e. 20 countries, and from the territory on various technical devices Internet websites and communications tools. However, these virtual community remains autonomous and its development unforeseeable. The network-s sphere of action exceeds the Brittany-s territorial frontiers. Investing in such technical devices, the public leaders are not able to control the uses made by the community. Considering that, we ponder how a territorial policy is able to go with informal networks. Conversely how actions in this community is able to take part in located and territorialized policies ?
