Urban dwellers who do not use the Internet are more likely than rural residents to say they think they will eventually go online. Forty-seven percent of urbanites not now online think they will go online some day, while a third (33%) of those who live in rural areas say the same. Forty-one percent of offline suburban inhabitants think they will go online.
More Midwesterners and Southerners believe they will never use the Internet. Close to 60% of offline inhabitants of both regions say they do not think they will ever go online. This contrasts with Northeast and West regions where about half of their offline residents don’t think they will ever use the Internet.
