A Third of Americans Don’t Use the Internet
Although the Internet allows us to do many useful things such as order groceries, file our taxes and communicate with others overseas, not everyone is onboard with being online.
The National Telecommunications & Information Administration recently asked 50,000 Americans how often they use the Internet, and 30 percent said they don’t log on at work or even during their downtime.
The key reasons cited for not having broadband were that it was too pricy (26 percent) or it simply wasn’t needed (38 percent).
Because of the new findings the NTIA is distributing billions of dollars in grants to try and boost adoption. (Broadcasting & Cable)
