Results from a recent Pew Research study have determined that 59% of seniors report they go online, which is a six-percentage point increase in the course of one year. In addition, 77% of older adults have a cell phone, up from 69% in April 2012.

The study has revealed that affluent and well-educated seniors adopt the internet and broadband at substantially higher rates than those with lower levels of income and educational attainment.

79% of older adults who use the internet agree with the statement that “people without internet access are at a real disadvantage because of all the information they might be missing,” while 94% agree with the statement that “the internet makes it much easier to find information today than in the past.”
