The Pew Internet & American Life Project’s survey of broadband Internet users shows that broadband users spend more time online, do more things, and do them more often than dial-up Internet users. There are three major ways in which broadband users distinguish themselves from their dial-up counterparts. For high-speed home users, broadband lets them use the Internet to:

1.) Become creators and managers of online content;

2.) Satisfy a wide range of queries for information, and;

3.) Engage in multiple Internet activities on a daily basis.
