    Connected Nation released its annual residential broadband adoption survey results on October 13, 2011, revealing the top trends in technology use among key demographics. The survey revealed the majority of low-income, senior, disabled adult, Hispanic, and African-American households are without broadband at home, leaving them facing an uphill battle in keeping up with essential online resources, job and educational opportunities, and social services. The survey also shows 31.6 million people living in rural areas do not subscribe to broadband service at home, and 7.6 million children in low-income households are without access to this essential tool at home.
