EVV discriminates against elderly, hispanic, and the poor

discriminate against the poor, the disabled, the Hispanic, and the elderly.  Pew reports that   19% of people living in the USA do not have a smart phones and internet access, 47% of senior adults do not, 21% of the Hispanic, and 29% of the low income.   

EVV discriminates against them...   NO DMAS numerous people couldn't get the smart phones and even if they did they come with limited data, etc...
