Broadband Reaches Critical Mass

More than 27 million US homes have high-speed broadband Internet access, and broadband has gone mainstream, says research firm In-Stat/MDR. In other words, broadband has made it over the adoption hump, with one in five US homes now using the service. We should start to see a huge increase in broadband-related services from a variety of companies that want to take advantage of consumers who are interested in entertainment, home networking, and gaming. Cable modem use continues to dominate DSL service; more than 60 percent of all broadband access comes into homes through coaxial cable, although DSL still outperforms cable worldwide.
