2016 Census data: Cleveland still third worst-connected big city

47% of Cleveland households still didn’t have “fixed” broadband Internet subscriptions (cable, DSL, fiber or satellite) in 2016, according to new American Community Survey One Year Estimates released last Thursday by the U.S. Census.

32% of our households lacked home Internet connections of any kind, including mobile wireless or dial-up accounts.

In both cases Cleveland’s percentages were the third worst among the 75 U.S. cities with 100,000 or more households.

The ACS Estimates are based on mailback surveys sent to about 300,000 randomly selected households across the U.S. each month.
