My questions on the report:

1. I read the section on the "offline population" and I was interested in the figure of 20 percent of the population who don't have the Internet because they don't want it. What about those who don't have it for other reasons (financial, no computer, etc.)? Do they want it but just don't have it? Is it truly an inequality to not have access, or do people without it not care that they don't have it?

2. In the chapter on disabilities, it talks about what different disabilities prevent people from accessing the Internet and what those with disabilities use the Internet for. For those without special access, what would they need (special tools, etc.) in order to access the Internet and use it to their ability?

3. What are the implications of this study, and how can we use it?
