How fast are most connection speeds in the US and Canada?  How far has broadband penetrated into these countries?  According to the latest data compiled from Nielsen//NetRatings and Ipsos-Reid, broadband penetration in US homes slowed somewhat in March, while Canada is leading the US by a wide margin.

As of April, 2003 broadband penetration for US users was at 33.8%, up from 33.5% in February. In contrast, 64% of Canadian home users enjoy a broadband connection. 

The Bandwidth Report is a monthly roundup of connectivity trends in the US and elsewhere. Each month's bandwidth report offers the latest statistics in Internet connectivity and broadband trends, including:

  • Home Connectivity in the US
  • Broadband Growth in the US
  • Work Connectivity
  • Broadband Trends in the US, Canada, and other countries
The Bandwidth Report is available at http://www.websiteoptimization.com/bw/0303/

About WebSiteOptimization.com:

Don't Make Me Wait! The new book titled "Speed Up Your Site - Web Site Optimization" by Andy King, and the companion web site are about designing "speedy" web sites with techniques that...

  • Cut file size and download times in half
  • Speed up site load time to satisfy customers
  • Engage users with fast response times and flow stimulus
  • Increase usability, boost profits, and slash bandwidth costs
  • Improve search engine rankings
Andrew B. King is also the founder of WebReference.com and JavaScript.com, both award-winning developer sites from internet.com. Created in 1995 and subsequently acquired by
Mecklermedia (now Jupitermedia) in 1997, WebReference has grown into one of the most popular developer sites on the Internet.  While he was Managing Editor of WebReference.com and
JavaScript.com, Andy became the "Usability Czar" at internet.com, where he optimized the speed and usability of their sites. He continues to write the three weekly newsletters he started for
WebReference.com and JavaScript.com.
