A new consumer research conducted by Leichtman Research Group finds that 53% of all US households now subscribe to a broadband high-speed Internet service at home. Broadband services now account for about 72% of total home Internet subscriptions as compared to 60% last year.

This report has also noted that income still plays a major role in broadband adoption: "68% of all households with annual incomes over $50,000 now get broadband, compared to 59% last year; and 39% of all households with annual incomes under $50,000 get broadband, compared to 27% last year."

Leichtman Research Group forecasts that the total number of broadband subscribers will increase by over 40 million over the next five years.
