FCC data shows US broadband growth slows

The speed of broadband uptake in the US slowed in the first half of 2004, the Federal Communications Commission has reported.

By CBR Staff Writer

While the number of high-speed Internet connections to US homes and business increased 15% from 28.2 million to 32.5 million in the first half of 2004, that compares to a 20% increase in the second half of 2003, the FCC said.

DSL services provided most of the growth. ADSL lines rose 20% to 11.4 million, while cable modem connections, a more mature market, were up just 13% to 18.6 million. The remaining 2.5 million links were satellite or wireless or non-ADSL wireline.
