RALEIGH – Raleigh is among the nation's best cities for expanding access to digital technology, a report from the United Way of the National Capital Area found. Often described as 'digital equity,' the organization behind the report said that the concept might not feel like a big deal, as long as you have access to an affordable, reliable device that can connect to the internet. Which isn't always the case for those living in Raleigh. Still, one of the reasons the city ranked so highly while others in North Carolina did not perform as well is that Raleigh is among the best in the nation for the number of free wireless internet hotspots, per capita.
