Security for virtualized datacentres

Price and the lack of compelling content is hampering the take-up of broadband in the US, according to the latest research from In-Stat/MDR.

Despite this, those behind the research reckon that by the end of the year nearly one in four of online households will subscribe to a broadband service.

The research predicts that the number of xDSL broadband users will grow by three million to 7.6m subscribers by the end of the year, with eight out of ten of those broadband connections serving homes.

Despite this growth in broadband it seems that dial-up will remain the primary method for home users to access the Net for at least until 2006, say analysts.

At the end of 2001, six out of ten of all US households subscribed to a dial-up or broadband Net service, said In-Stat/MDR. ®
