Why Connect20

Published May 1, 2023

At Network:On we know the value of the Internet – and if you’re reading this, you probably do too! We know that broadband access improves a community’s economy, helps folks reach healthcare services, and creates education and job opportunities. But we also know that too many Americans remain unconnected.

According to NTIA’s Internet Use Survey data, nearly 20% of Americans do not have a home broadband connection.

We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to connect all Americans to the benefits of robust high-speed broadband.

That’s why Network:On is focusing on connecting the unconnected – demonstrating successful ways to get Americans online and providing partners with resources to increase adoption rates in their communities. Today we are launching a new campaign to showcase efforts to Connect the 20% and close the digital adoption gap!
