Increasing from 32 Million U.S. Households in 2004 to 69 Million in 2010
NEW YORK, NY - June 2, 2005 -- JupiterResearch, a division of Jupitermedia Corporation (Nasdaq: JUPM), today released its annual forecasts of the U.S. online population and broadband access. Two JupiterResearch reports, entitled "Portrait of the Online Population: 2004-2010," and "JupiterResearch Broadband Forecast: Competitive Pricing and Increased Availability Speed the Decline of Dial-Up", present JupiterResearch's latest projections of the growth of Internet usage by American consumers. According to these reports, the overall online population in the United States is maturing and will grow relatively modestly over the next five years, from 75 million households at the end of 2004 to 88 million by the end of 2010. Residential broadband adoption, however, will increase dramatically from slightly under half of online households in 2004 to 78% of online households by the end of 2010.
