If I’m not mistaken, broadband penetration currently sits above 50% in the US. Hard to believe, but it does, at least according to the last set of reports I read. Course, this could mean these folks are sporting something over 128Kbps, which is obnoxiously slow in my book. Now, according to PCWorld, broadband penetration will hit 77% by 2012. What’s the upside of this? Perhaps the networks will begin concentrating on our connection quality versus distribution. Daily my Internet connection is problematic. It’s not that I can’t download a file at a reasonable speed, it’s that I can’t request websites quickly (talking over 50ms). The reason for the penetration will be attributable to 4G, such as Wimax.
