Two out of five US residents have Broadband at home, according to the findings of a recent report by Nielsen/NetRatings, a market research firm. The number of Americans with broadband access reached 42 percent of the U.S. population in August, increasing 16% to 120.8 million. Much of the recent growth has come to low cost broadband plans, but the growth is beginning to taper off. Nielsen/NetRatings also reported that in August 2005, the percent of active U.S. Internet users connecting online via broadband from home reached
an all-time high, at 61.3 percent, compared with 51.4 percent of active Internet users in August last year.
