Pew: Broadband have-nots are starting to have

Broadband adoption is increasing among some of the groups previously marginalized by broadband growth, according to new research from Pew Internet & American Life Project. For example, rural broadband market penetration has increased from 38 percent to 46 percent since May 2008. Meanwhile, 35 percent of households with income of less than $20,000 subscribed to broadband this year compared with 5 percent last year, and broadband adoption among those 65 and older grew to 30 percent from 19 percent over the same period.
