IS-2010-136: Home Broadband 2010

The Pew Research Center did an annual survey for 2010 of Internet usage in America.  Internet usage grew among African-Americans in a market that overall was flat from 2009.  About 66% have high-speed Internet access, while 5% have dialup access.  Adoption is skewed toward those with more education and income, and lower age: 80% among the 18-29 year olds while only 31% above 65 year olds.  There is more support for government efforts to expand broadband access among those under 30 years old than over.  The applications used via the Internet were surveyed and are reported.
