Description:

Created by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, this report focuses on the nature of broadband --- high speed communication --- use in American homes. The report reveals that nearly 24 million Americans (21% of all Internet users) have high-speed connections at home; as a result, they are able to spend more time online and perform more activities within a shorter period of time than dial-up Internet users. Consequently, there has been a steady increase in broadband adoption among Internet users because it transforms and enhances their online experience. According to the report, since the Pew Internet Project first inquired about residential broadband use in June 2000, the number of high-speed home users has quadrupled from 6 million to 24 million Americans.
