Poor relations?

With the ongoing debate about broadband availability in the UK it comes as a slight surprise that the United States is little different. A recent report in the MIT Technology Review, 16 February 2010, from Associated Press confirms this stating that 40% of US homes lack broadband access. Unsurprisingly, just like the UK, there is an urban versus rural divide. There is also a racial and age divide with blacks, Hispanics, and those aged over 55 less likely to have broadband at home.

Or perhaps I shouldn’t be suprised? It’s a big country!
