The Pew study found that 14% of dial-up users do not have the capability to get broadband, which is why they do not upgrade.

That first excuse is decent, but they later found that the vast majority had reasons which basically stated that they do not want to upgrade.

19% of dial-up users stated that no matter what, they would not upgrade to broadband. Others insisted that broadband was simply too expensive, which is understandable.

PEW stated that 50% of all American adults are now on broadband at the home, up from 47% a year ago.

The total number of people in the U.S. with dial-up is at just 10%
