US residents are among the worst internet users in the country, according to a report released today.
In a survey of more than 1,000 residents, the American Dialect Society found that of those surveyed, just 5% said they used broadband to access the internet.
This is the lowest percentage of internet users surveyed to use the internet in the US.
The findings are likely to spark further criticism from the US tech community.
The survey found that 56% of internet subscribers in Massachusetts had never used the internet before, and only 37% had done so in the past year.
“The vast majority of internet customers in Massachusetts are not using the internet to access digital content, and most are not interested in subscribing to broadband services at all,” the report says.
“These are the people who could use a fast internet connection for the next few years, if not for years to come.
The US has the highest number of internet households in the world at about 14.4 million, according the internet service providers’ trade group, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association.
The report found that the US had one of the highest rates of residential broadband use in the OECD, where most of the world’s countries are based.”
The report’s author, Peter Karpinsky, said the US was “the most aggressive US market in terms of the amount of internet connectivity”.”
We are just looking at how many people are using the network and how many connections are available to them.”
The report’s author, Peter Karpinsky, said the US was “the most aggressive US market in terms of the amount of internet connectivity”.
The US is the only major country in the industrialized world that doesn’t require broadband to be included in the national plan.
But Mr Karpinks says that was largely because the plan had been rushed through Congress, which is not expected to approve it until next year.
The lack of broadband in Massachusetts is not surprising, he said.
“If you look at all of the other countries in the Americas, they all have very strong and highly competitive broadband markets,” he said, “so the fact that we are doing this in Massachusetts, and they are not, is a pretty good indication that there is something wrong with that”.
Mr Karpoks also said it was “very hard to tell whether it is the network quality, the speed, the price, or the quality of the service that people are getting”, because the survey did not include people with fixed line broadband, which many Americans still rely on for home broadband.
The study also found that people in the middle of the income distribution are the least likely to be connected to the internet, and that in rural areas, only 5% of households have access to the broadband internet service.
