One-third of UK homes still without internet access
In its 2008 Internet Access report, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revealed that in spite ofthe rise of broadband, more than one-third of UK households are without a web connection, ZDNet reports.
According to the ONS’s 2008 Internet Access report, 65% of homes – some 16.46 mn. households – have internet access, an increase of 1.23 million households since 2007. While 35% of UK homes still have no internet access, this figure is down from 43% two years ago.
It appears that the digital divide/deficit is alive and well.
