Households with no internet access


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.
