Digital Divide

August 27, 2007

The digital divide is the gulf between those parts of the population that have access to the internet and other digital technologies, and those sections of the population that do not.

There is concern that as so many services (both commercial and governmental) become available online, groups without digital access (caused by, among other things, high cost, lack of skills, location, or a combination of these) will be left behind, and miss out on opportunities in life and in work.
