Black Households Less Likely to Have Internet Service: Study

When it comes to having access to home internet access, Black households are still more likely to lag behind their white counterparts, according to a recent study.

The study, conducted by Allconnect, a broadband ad marketplace website, found that Blacks are 3.3 times more likely to not have home internet access than white households and 66% more likely to not have home internet than Hispanic households, Progress Index reported.

Households with incomes under $40,000, are 80% more likely to not have internet compared to their higher-income peers, Progress Index reported.

“A lot of research reaffirms that even if the internet is free, there are some challenges to consumers adopting it, particularly those who live in low-income areas,” said Kristie Fox, vice president of communications for Comcast’s Beltway Region, which oversees Virginia, Progress Index reported.
