18 Million U.S. Households Have Access to the Internet but Can’t Afford To Connect

The digital divide impacts 80 million Americans

OUR NEW MISSION

Internet Access
Isn’t a Luxury,
It’s a Necessity

Without high-speed Internet access at home, Americans can’t send their children to school, work remotely, or access healthcare, job training, the social safety net, or critical government services. EducationSuperHighway’s new mission is to close the digital divide for the 18 million households that have access to the Internet but can’t afford to connect. We focus on America’s most unconnected communities, where more than 25% of people don’t have Internet.

A HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY TO CLOSE  

The Broadband Affordability Gap

Approximately 28.2 million of the 122.8 million households in the United States do not have high-speed broadband.
Nearly two-thirds of unconnected households have access to a home broadband connection but are offline because they cannot afford to connect. Affordability is now the number one barrier to closing the digital divide.
