Cell Phone Use Continues to be the Driver for Minority Access
The latest Pew report was published about Cell phone usage and it continues to show what increasingly more and more people are starting to realize, that wireless is the key driver to closing the digital divide. You can find the report here but all the data points to how mobile broadband is continuing to provide access to minorities to services that they otherwise would not be connected to. IF you look at the chart of mobile activities by race, the growth is fairly obvious. But even with this data showing the need for more coverage in areas where Minorities currently do not have adequate coverage. People still work to block actions like the ATT merger which would help solve this issue but they don’t offer any other solutions to replace it. As you look through this study is clear everyone’s focus should be on universal access.
