    27. 27. Home broadband adoption increased from 47% from March 2007 to 55% in April 2008. Some 55% of adult Americans now have broadband internet connections at home, up from 47% who had high-speed access at home lastyear at this time. From March 2006 to March 2007, home broadband adoption grew from 42% of Americans to 47%.

It is also worth noting that the April 2008 number for broadband adoption at home is little changed from the 54% figure in the Pew Internet Project’s December 2007 survey. With growth in broadband at home, now just 10% of Americans have dial-up internet connections at home.
