Why is having internet at home important?

  • Jobs are increasingly requiring the internet: More than 80% of Fortune 500 companies (including huge employers like Wal-Mart and Target) only accept job applications online. In the next decade, nearly 80% of jobs will require some digital literacy skills.

  • Students with broadband at home graduate at a rate 6-8% higher than students who lack such access.

  • Consumers with broadband at home can save up to $7,000 per year on goods and services.

  • Annual revenues of small businesses with broadband access are, on average, $200,000 higher than those without broadband.

  • Most U.S. teachers assign homework that requires Internet access: According to a 2008 survey, 77% of teachers responded that they or a colleague assigned homework that required Internet access to complete – and that number is certain to be rising.
