Increasing internet access to bridge the digital divide

Over 44% of low-income households in the United States don't have an internet connection or a traditional computer.

Digital Divide U.S. Map

Across the country, thousands of people living in under-resourced communities don’t have access to the technology resources many people take for granted: internet access, a computer, or the education on how to use digital tools. This disparity between resourced and under-resourced communities is known as the “digital divide." Digital exclusion permeates into every aspect of life, creating educational, economic, and career disenfranchisement. As part of Alliant’s social mission, we’re taking a stand to help bridge the digital divide, and taking action to create equitable digital access for all.
