Broadband Availability

   The statistics on broadband
   availability tell a story of
   nearly universal access.
   Almost every home in the
   U.S. has a choice of broad-
   band providers with options
   of either wired, wireless or
   satellite forms of access.
   This widespread availability
   places the U.S.well above the
                                                                      European Union in terms of
                                                                      access options.
