Percentage of public schools offering various types of internet access and providing hand-held or laptop computers, by locale: 2005

1 Percentages are based on public schools with internet access.
2 Percentages include schools using solely wireless internet connections (both broadband and narrowband), as well as schools using both wireless and wired connections.
3 Hand-held computers are personal digital assistants, such as Palm Pilots or Pocket PCs. Schools were asked to include all hand-held computers provided for instructional purposes, including those available for loan, but to exclude laptop computers.
NOTE: For estimates that are 100 percent, the event defined could have been reported by fewer schools had a different sample been drawn. All percentages based on all public schools unless noted.
