According to the FCC report "Our analysis shows that roughly 80 million American adults do not subscribe to broadband at home, and approximately 14 to 24 million Americans do not have access to broadband today. The latter group appears to be disproportionately lower-income Americans and Americans who live in rural areas."

The FCC Report now defines broadband as having at least 4 Mbps downstream and 1 Mbps upstream (instead of the former 200 kbps). The 143 page FCC report, whicch was released on July 20, 2010, is available at:
