Broadband: Broadband Surges in 2002, But Narrowband Declines

Broadband: Broadband Surges in 2002, But Narrowband Declines "Broadband access in the United States surged in 2002, growing fastest among both the oldest Internet users and the youngest, according to a new report by Nielsen/NetRatings.
The company Wednesday reported that broadband access at home posted a 59 percent year-over-year increase in 2002, bringing the total number of U.S. users who accessed the Web via high-speed connections to more than 33.6 million in Dec. 2002.
While broadband saw its fortunes rising, narrowband connections began to lose ground in 2002, declining 10 percent during the course of the year to about 74.4 million users by the end of December."
