Ethnic minorities in the UK are more likely to be connected to broadband than any other Britons according to a study by industry regulators Ofcom.
The research undertaken recently claims that 80 per cent of ethnic minority members in the UK are connected to the internet via broadband, compared to the UK’s national average of 74 percent. Also 83 percent of ethnic minorities who responded said that the communications technology was very important to them compared to the 69 percent nation’s average.
The majority of respondents also claimed that having broadband connection in their homes was very useful for their children’s education whereas only 47 percent of the rest of the country believed it was useful.
"This latest research from Ofcom shows encouraging take-up of digital communications services among ethnic minority groups," said Ofcom chief executive Ed Richards.
This research comes recently after Point Topic claimed that broadband uptake was on the rise.
