Broadband rules – really! September 20, 2006

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.
