Older Adults and Technology by Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project


Six in ten seniors now go online, and just under half are broadband adopters

In April 2012 the Pew Research Center found for the first time that more than half of older adults (defined as those ages 65 or older) were internet users. Today, 59% of seniors report they go online—a six-percentage point increase in the course of a year—and 47% say they have a high-speed broadband connection at home. In addition, 77% of older adults have a cell phone, up from 69% in April 2012.
