While Internet use and information technology is expanding, the digital divide is widening for some groups in California. The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) will present the results of its benchmark survey on Californians’ access to information technology, including computer ownership, access to the Internet, and the use of mobile devices. The survey, conducted in collaboration with the California Emerging Technology Fund, also looks at perceptions of the role of government in areas such as Internet regulation and broadband access and availability.
