“A few statistics illustrate the importance of broadband to LGBT teenagers in the United States. Gay teens spend an average of five hours online each day, more than their straight counterparts. Gay teens are more than two-and-a-half times more likely to have met a close friend online. And they are much more likely than their straight counterparts to search the Internet for health information.”
