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)
