today I received an email with topic like this: Gig gamification, a broader digital divide + the fast track to transformation. Microsoft finds a broader digital divide Microsoft recently released the results of an analysis of US high-speed internet usage, finding that the Federal Communications Commission has grossly understated the number of Americans who lack access to broadband service.

I am not sure what exactly meaning do they mean in this context

  • Have you looked up the definitions of "gig", "gamification", and "digital divide"? The meaning of "digital divide" in this context is even included in your excerpt: "the number of Americans who lack access to broadband service" (as compared to those who do not lack access).
