One-third wireless and one-third dial-up

Reuters:

One-third of U.S. Internet users have connected to the Web using a wireless network to send e-mails, check the latest news or read other things, according to a survey released on Sunday by the Pew Internet Project.

Given that many (most?) cable and tele home connection routers/modems come equipped with wireless, this is not surprising.

More surprising, even shocking, and not mentioned at Reuters, is that one-third of U.S. Internet users connect at home with dial-up. (See p. 7 of the Pew report.)
