There is a growing gap between people today. Between those who have access to modern information and technology – and those who don’t.
Digital inequality is evident between urban communities and rural settlements; between socioeconomic groups; between less economically developed countries and ones that flourish.
Even among populations with ready access to technology, the digital divide often takes the form of low-end computers, erratic wireless connections, and limited access to subscription-based content.
The reality of a separate-access marketplace is problematic. And while ever more people are using smartphones – even among low income and minority groups – expensive data plans and the difficulty of performing tasks and transactions on smartphones continue to prevent the closing of the gap.
At Impact Crowd Technology, we want to bridge that gap.
