Submission + - Four type of Americans have no Internet (ibtimes.com)

markmark57 writes: The Federal Communications Commission announced plans to launch its National Broadband Plan next month, which will provide high-speed Internet connections to over 93 million Americans who currently don't use Internet.

In a survey conducted by the FCC in November last year, it found that only 78 percent of U.S. adults are Internet users and 65 percent are broadband adopters. Incredibly, six percent of Americans still use dial-up access and four percent have no broadband at home at all. The report showed the main reasons why some users are resistant to set up the Internet is because they lack the knowledge or financially unable. This can then be further divided into four profiles of those who are yet to adopt broadband, and in some cases, Internet.
