The cost of service can prevent some from being able to access the internet. This chart shows the average reported monthly cost of service among households in the community compared to those in other Connected communities. Two-percent of household income is the benchmark generally used when determining the affordability of home internet service. The chart shows the monthly cost of service expressed as 2% of the community’s median income according to the US Census. It is important to remember that this benchmark is applied to the median income. Half of the households in the community earn less than the median income and thus may find broadband service at this price unaffordable.
