Internet Access Poll Results

While I realize that sites such as mine attract a highly non-random sample of web surfers, I was still a bit surprised by the fact that over 90% of all respondents have a broadband connection. More specifically, 55% reported having a cable connection, followed by 35% with DSL, and a handful of people with satellite internet or broadband wireless. With respect to dialup access, just 5% of respondents reported using a 56k modem. Click here to see the full results (or to participate if you haven’t had a chance to do so yet).

    I wonder if these results might be slanted because so many people who DON’T have high speed access (rather, other than dial-up), aren’t viewing websites such as this that would take a long time to load. In my case, were I still on dial-up, rather than satellite, it’s highly likely that this page would never load before my server timed out.

    Don’t get too excited yet about these results!

    Seems like a switch is being made to broadband from the old frustrating dial-up. For me DSL has been a blessing. I quickly forgot the struggles of dialing up every time I wanted to access the internet. And now with wireless DSL I am floating in the cyber clouds.
