Majority of US Internet users on broadband
I noticed over at Slashdot
that the majority of US Internet users are now on broadband
In July, there were an estimated 63 million broadband users, or 51% of all home Internet users, compared with 61.3 million dial-up users, 49% of the total. A year earlier, broadband users were just 38% of all home Internet users, at about 42.8 million, and dial-up users were 62%, or about 70.5 million, Ryan said.
As great as it is to see more users hooked up to fat pipes, it's inevitable that some of those users are moving unpatched or otherwise compromised systems to always-on connections.
