TERM OF THE MONTH
"Digital equity" is defined as ensuring all individuals and communities have the information technology capacity needed for full participation in our society, democracy, and economy. Today, more than 20 million Americans still lack access to high-speed internet connectivity at home. Broadband connectivity is critical for education, communication, personal development and professional advancement, and as all our communities transition to work and schooling from home during our nation's COVID-19 response, gaps in digital access will become even more glaring. Starry Internet is doing its part to combat digital inequality in public and affordable housing. Learn how we do this through our Starry Connect program.
