ACORN Canada – Closing the Digital Divide
Resource Type: Internet For All
Internet has transformed our world; yet 42% of people who make below $30,000 don’t have high speed home internet. When this is compared to the 2% in the highest income quartile who don’t have high speed internet at home the need for change becomes stark! This “digital divide” clearly excludes low-income individuals and families from what the United Nations now considers to be a human right, comparable with freedom of speech. This is why ACORN members from across Canada are fighting to ensure home high speed internet is affordable to low income families!
