Pew Research: 70% of Americans Have Broadband

A new Pew Research study has been released that indicates 70% of Americans have broadband access at home. Economic factors seem to be the greatest determinants of likelihood to subscribe to broadband at home, but the study did not account for adults who opt to forgo home internet access a because they have access at work, potentially skewing broader access statistics.  After broadband subscriptions dipped in 2010, the numbers continue to rise, with the Pew statistics indicating an unsurprising all-time high broadband subscribership.
