According to the Yankee Group's
recently published Report "Residential Broadband: Provisioning Cable Modem Service," three quarters of U.S. households will have
high-speed Internet access available to them by year-end 2001. That’s up from the 60% of homes passed by cable modem or DSL service providers at the end of 2000. The report also says that cable modem
service will continue to be more broadly available, with cable reaching 66% of U.S. homes by year-end 2001, compared to 45% of U.S. homes with DSL available.
