What If You Could Not Access the Internet? 80 Million Americans Cannot Afford to be Connected
January 30, 2015
While the majority of Americans have access to high speed broadband connections, nearly one third of Americans–low-income families, seniors, and persons with disabilities–have no broadband internet at all, limiting their ability to engage in the 21st century. On this episode of the Affordable Housing Podcast, brought to you by Eden Housing, we’ll be focusing on what it will take to bridge the Digital Divide and get more low-income households online in a way that can significantly enhance their lives and increase opportunities.
Joining our host Joanne Greene are Sunne Wright McPeak, President and CEO of the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) , and Chris Estes, President and CEO of the National Housing Conference (NHC).
