The Digital Divide - washingtonpost.com

What about that new economy?
The Digital Divide - washingtonpost.com:


"Roughly one-quarter -- 27%-- of U.S. adults are not Internet users.

43% of those who don't surf are over the age of 65.

43% have household incomes under $30,000 a year.

In comparison, 85% of households with incomes over $100,000 have broadband at home.

About one-third -- 35% -- of people who do not have high-speed Internet or broadband service said it was because service was too expensive. They said the price would have to drop before they adopted the service.

62% of dial-up users say they are not interested in giving up that connection for broadband. When asked what it would take to get them to switch to broadband, 35% said the price would have to fall."


What interests me is how many Internet users use the Internet for more than e-mail.
