Digital Nation: 21st Century America's Progress Toward Universal Broadband Internet Access

A new report from the NTIA and the Census reveals that 40 percent of people in the U.S. have no broadband access.

NTIA: A new report completed by the Census Bureau for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) reveals that fewer Americans have broadband access than many believe. Using a survey, researchers found that 40 percent of U.S. households had no access to broadband, and 30 percent of households had no Internet access at all.

Those with broadband access tend to be younger, white or Asian, highly-educated, married, and have higher incomes. Those without broadband were often seniors or minorities, less educated, living in non-family households with lower incomes, and/or unemployed.
