Nebraska outpacing the nation in Internet connectivity, according to Census Bureau

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Newly released U.S. Census Bureau data shows that Nebraska is outpacing the national average in Internet connectivity.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/11UqG2D) that about 30.4 percent of Nebraskans have Internet connectivity on multiple devices at home and out of the home, such as smartphones or tablets.

Nebraska is one of a dozen states that had higher connectivity than the national average. Twenty-seven percent of Americans had connection on more than one device.

Meanwhile, 14.3 percent of 1,694 Nebraskans interviewed reported having no computer or Internet connection at all, lower than the national average of 15.9 percent.

The findings are part of a 54,000-person survey conducted by the Census Bureau in July 2011.
