Consumer Broadband Adoption Trends

Broadband technology is a powerful tool that Iowa residents are using on a daily basis because of the value that it brings to their lives. Connect Iowa is working to make high-speed Internet available statewide, while empowering every Iowa resident to use broadband to enrich their lives.

To achieve these goals, Connect Iowa has conducted a survey of 3,600 residents across the state to see if they access broadband, and if so, how they are using it. In addition, we have conducted the largest state-level survey of people who do not subscribe to broadband to see what is preventing them from joining the digital community. Based on this data, we estimate that approximately 856,000 adults statewide do not have home broadband service, and adoption varies significantly across socioeconomic lines. The Residential Technology Assessments were conducted as part of the State Broadband Initiative (SBI) grant program, funded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

We would like for you to explore and share these results.
