Nearly one-quarter of Americans do not have access to the internet according to a study released last month by by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
Those without access to the Internet tended to be older, less affluent and less well educated.
The numbers breakout out into the following groups:
- Broadband @ Home: 55%
- Dail-up @ Home: 13%
- Broadband @ Work: 9%
- No Access: 24%
The survey was made up of 2,796 respondents, ages 18+ ; percents do not add up to 100% due to rounding.
