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.

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.
