About the Digital Divide

The digital divide is theeconomic, educational, and social inequalities between those who have computers and internet access and those who do not.* 

265,000

Households without home computers

416,000

Households with no internet access

311,000

Households only have internet access through their cell phones

The digital divide has existed for decades with disproportionate impacts on households located in low-income areas and among populations that are predominantly Black and Latino. In today’s society, a computer and reliable internet service are essential to accessing education, employment opportunities, healthcare services, financial resources, support networks, and commerce.
