According to an article for Pro Bono Australia, “More Aussies Online But Digital Divide Remains,” a recent survey shows that 86% of Australians are now online, putting the country on the same level as Sweden in internet use. This data shows that Australians have become more and more of a presence on the internet and are now using the internet as a resource in day-to-day activities. But not all Australians are getting online. According to this article by Adam Bender for PC Advisor, many rural Australians do not have the resources to get online. Rural communities have broadband coverage but have poor data speeds and poor technological infrastructure. This is a problem because as the rest of the country moves forward and many services become web-based, it is becoming more and more important for Australians to be able to get online. In rural Australia, it is now imperative for communities to be able to get online so that it will be possible in the future to bridge the digital gap.
