With more than 24 million unconnected households nationwide, the digital divide disproportionately affects people of color and under-resourced populations. According to the Federal Communications Commission, 35 percent of adults who do not use broadband at home are older, poorer, less educated, more likely to be a racial or ethnic minority, and more likely to have a disability than those with a home connection.
