by Curtis Lee Fulton

Seventy percent of US adults have broadband, finds a new survey by the Pew Research Center. Ten percent of adults have no broadband, but do have Internet access via smart phone. Twenty percent of US adults have no broadband and no smartphone.

The Pew survey also found that broadband penetration was highest among college graduates, adults under 50 fifty years old and adults earning at least $50,000 per household. White adults living in urban or suburban areas also had high broadband adaption.
