Provide tax incentives for closing the Digital Divide

The National Broadband Plan should promote digital inclusion of all citizens. The plan could propose tax incentives for closing the Digital Divide:

 

* Tax incentives for Americans who donate their old computers to economically disadvantaged families;

 

* Tax credits or subsidies for free or low-cost broadband Internet access for low-income households; and

 

* Tax incentives to businesses for digital training for their employees.
