On Feb. 17, 2011, via a Public Notice, the NTIA and the FCC unveiled the National Broadband Map along with an update to the Digital Nation report. The map depicts availability of higher speed Internet access, or broadband, for residential use, across the U.S. and is searchable by zip code.
The report said: "... Americans with disabilities are dramatically less likely to use broadband at home than the population without disabilities" and noted that 37.5% of people with disabilities did not have broadband at home compared to 68% of people without disabilities. The report noted that the highest rate of adoption, among the categories of people with disabilities, occurred by those who are either deaf or have difficulty hearing. This report used the October 2010 CPS data. See page 15 of the Digital National report for further information.
