Keeping Internet Access in Perspective

July 3rd, 2009

I think it’s important for publishers to recognize a simple fact about where the Interent and the web are today in the United States. Here’s the picture:


As you can easily see, as of April of this year, just under 60% of U.S. households had broadband Internet access at home. Canada and many European countries rank higher, other first-third world countries rank lower, but that’s not currently as important for your planning (it will be!).

Keep this figure in mind while you continue to flood the Internet with massive PDF files, videos and more.

That’s all. Happy July 4th!
