PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Information Technology

Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians are becoming increasingly mobile in their Internet use-there have been double-digit increases in cell-phone and tablet Internet access.
  • Californians’ Internet use and broadband access at home are comparable to that of adults nationwide.
  • Most view broadband Internet as a public utility and would favor a program funded by telecommunications providers to increase access.
