Pew: Updated Demographics for Internet, Broadband and Wireless Users
Updated Demographics for Internet, Broadband and Wireless Users, January 5, 2010
- “74% of American adults (ages 18 and older) use the internet — a slight drop from our survey in April 2009, which did not include Spanish interviews. At that time we found that 79% of English-speaking adults use the internet.
- 60% of American adults use broadband connections at home — a drop that is within the margin of error from 63% found in April 2009.
- 55% of American adults connect to the internet wirelessly, either through a WiFi or WiMax connection via their laptops or through a handheld device like a smart phone. This figure did not change in a statistically significant way during 2009.”
