Here is a disturbingly disappointing news. For the seven percent of all Americans their smartphone is the only Internet source. This may seem as an acceptable figure at the first glance. However, when you take into consideration that we are talking about almost 20 million users, then you get our point.
So, what is that supposed to mean? The land, which gave birth to Apple and Google, limits the option of people less fortunate to earn less than $30,000 a year. They do not have any kind of the Internet at home. All they have and use is a smart device in the palm of their hands. No more. No less.
The sad thing in this story is that we have the third world Internet conditions for a significant number of people, who live in, the number one country out of all first world countries – the one and only USA. We can talk all day long about our fascinating progress, but all of that is actually in vain.
The proper access to the Internet with a decent connection speed is the very mirror of our current level of achievements. So, the moral of our dark-cloud-story is that the busy little US bees have to find a way to “wire” this mobile-Internet-nation. Until then do not brag around, because it sounds bad.
