Almost seven in ten Nebraskans age 65 and older have Internet service in their home (69%). In addition, over one-half (59%) have broadband Internet service (Internet service faster than dial-up). In comparison, the Pew Research Center recently reported that 59 percent of senior adults nationwide are Internet users and 47 percent have a high-speed broadband connection at home. Thus, senior Nebraskans are adopting technology faster than their counterparts nationwide; however, they still lag behind younger Nebraskans in their adoption of technology.
