The gap in the use of the Internet and computers in society is classified as the level-two digital divide. Research papers from 61 popular journals published between 2005 to 2018 were examined to carry out a Systematic Literature Review (SLR). In addition, renowned organisations’ research publications from 2010 to 2018 were used. The adoption of technology, the type of use, the frequency of use, and the effectiveness of use were the main areas of level-two Digital Divide research. This use is further affected by the accessibility determinants of Affordability, Gender, Age, Education Level, Race, and Digital Skills. None of the research used the accessibility determinants as a moderator between availability and use. 

Keywords: Accessibility, Adoption, Affordability, Digital Divide, Digital Skills, ICT Use, SLR.
