Well, they seem to have caught on to the idea of “pay for service”. Now they have to introduce some competition. This is an opportunity for a competitor to come around and offer some more convenient payment options.
What’s telling are the specific responses those polled gave for why they don’t access the ‘Net. 47.2% of 2009 respondents still said “don’t need/not interested.” But 22.3% said they felt that they didn’t have a good enough computer-or any computer at all. 8.6% called the Internet “too expensive.” Over four percent cited “lack of skill.”
Still a very large number though. I was surprised. Many are probably elderly.
