From the introduction:

It has become a truism that high-speed Internet connectivity in a 21st century economy is not a mere luxury, but a necessity, nearly as important as electricity. Yet, a common misunderstanding of exactly where the digital divide is located has led to faulty assumptions about where investments need to be made, as if broadband access is a challenge confined primarily in rural America. The actual shape of the problem is different than many elected officials realize.
