Broadband use rises

The Pew Internet and American Life Project reported Sunday that 24 percent of all American adults now have residential broadband. Most of the growth in broadband use is DSL, which now accounts for almost half of broadband access.

The report noted that 55 percent of all American adults have high-speed access either at home or at work. More than half (52%) of college educated people age 35 and younger have broadband connections at home.

However, only 10% of rural Americans have high-speed connections at home.
