  1. Greetings;
    This data suggest that around 74% of US households subscribe to some form of internet access.Does data from independent surveys confirms this result?

  2. To Wolke;
    72% of all internet connections are broadband not that 72% of all household have broadband connection.
    If 72% of all connections are broadband and only 53% of household have broadband then fully 72% of household should have some kind of internet connection.

  4. Millions of Americans – especially those in rural and low-income urban areas still don’t have access to high-speed broadband because it does not yet pay for providers to invest in these areas. Dial-up and satellite are the only ways they can connect to the internet.

    The FCC’s current definition of “high speed” is inadequate at just 200 kbps in one direction. It is time for the FCC to immediately set the bar for “high speed” at 2 mbps downstream and 1 mbps upstream.

    It is time for the U.S. to adopt policies for universal access and set deployment timetables. Check out CWA’s “Speed Matters” campaign and read their policy paper which has some excellent recommendations for achieving universal affordable broadband access for all U.S. households regardless of income and geographic location.
