Broadband rules – really! September 20, 2006Posted by Tom in Technology.
InformationWeek reports on a JD Power & Associates report that tells us that broadband Internet access now is more widely used in the United States than dial-up internet. Dial-up still has a healthy share – 44 percent of the market, according to JD Power – but has definitely seen its day come and go.
Looking from a global competitiveness point of view, the societal transition to broadband can’t happen fast enough. In order to perform on a world stage, our population needs to have the tools to succeed…including high-speed Internet access. 33.6 modems just don’t cut it when you’re trying to conduct business half a world away.
Good news, indeed.
