Широкополосный доступ в интернет в США // economist



A DECADE ago, an internet connection capable of streaming a film or transmitting a video call was considered a luxury. Today, for much of the world, it is a necessity.

On July 15th, President Barack Obama launched an initiative that he hopes will bring this necessity to more low-income American households. The program, called “ConnectHome”, is a partnership between government, tech companies and non-profit organisations that will provide low-cost broadband internet, digital literacy programs and other resources to 275,000 public-housing developments in 28 locations across the country.

ConnectHome is the latest White House effort to bridge the so-called “digital divide”, the gap in IT access and know-how between the rich and the poor. America’s digital divide has narrowed in recent years but is still large for a rich country. In 2013, for example, approximately 67% of households in the Bronx borough of New York City had a broadband internet subscription; 5% had an ultrahigh-speed fibre-optic connection. In Manhattan, just across the Harlem River, the figures were 80% and 9%, respectively.
