Metric:Broadband adoption slows down

According to a study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, Americans' adoption of high-speed Internet is slowing down and will continue to lose steam. In the first six months of 2005, 53 percent of home Internet users said they use a broadband connection, up from only 50 percent in the previous six months. The report found this growth rate in sharp contrast to the previous year. High-speed Internet penetration grew by 20 percent, from 35 percent of home users in December 2003 to 42 percent in May 2004.
