Over Half of American Households Now Subscribe to High-speed Internet


(Thanks to GigaOM for the tip!)


According to latest research conducted by Leichtman Research Group (LRG), 53% of all US households now subscribe to a broadband high-speed Internet service. Also, broadband services now account for about 72% of all home Internet subscriptions – compared to 60% last year.


Broadband penetration remains strongly correlated with household income with homes earning over 50k per year - almost twice as likely to have the service.  Bruce Leichtman, president and principal analyst for Leichtman Research Group, Inc. stated that “LRG forecasts the total number of broadband subscribers will increase by over 40 million over the next five years.”


These findings are based on a telephone survey of 1,600 randomly selected households from throughout the United States and are part of a new LRG study, Broadband Access and Service in the Home 2007.
