THE BRONX - Most people are glued to their phones and computers these days, constantly using the Internet, but a new study says that doesn't mean everyone is connected to the web.

According to the Pew Research Center, about one in every seven adults over the age of 18 doesn't use the Internet at all, which equals about 15 percent of the population.

News 12 asked Bronx residents if they could live without the Internet and they said it'd be nearly impossible in this digital age.

Some said they were surprised by the study, and think it must be older people who aren't dialed in.
