Report: Hispanics most avid mobile broadband users

While Hispanics trail other U.S. populations in overall access to the Internet, they also are among the most avid users of mobile broadband in Colorado and other states where they represent a large portion of the population, a new report finds.

In fact, 53 percent of Hispanics use mobile broadband, compared to 33 percent of whites, according to the report, published Wednesday by the nonprofit Hispanic Institute.

Hispanics also outpace the general population when it comes to digital media consumption, with 42 percent accessing and downloading digital media, compared to 35 percent of those in the general population.

The report notes that there are 48 million Hispanics living in the U.S. with 81 percent of them concentrated in 10 states, including Colorado, whose population is 20 percent Hispanic.

The report suggests that policymakers consider Hispanics’ concerns as they develop a national broadband strategy.
