GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Minneapolis and St. Paul are launching a new effort to bridge the growing digital divide between those who have the access or technology to get online, and those who don't.

It's part of a nationwide initiative from the nonproft Connect2Compete, called "Everyone On."

Organizers say 100 million Americans don't have a broadband connection at home. 62 million don't use the internet at all.

The campaign is designed to help access technology through free digital literacy training, discounted high-speed internet and low-cost computers.
