Unfortunately, many Americans don’t have to imagine. According to the Federal Communications Commission, more than 18 million Americans don’t have access to high-speed Internet service. These “have-nots” constitute the so-called “digital divide” and are shut out of the myriad of economic, educational, and social benefits the Internet has to offer.
