Home Networks Go Mainstream
March 5, 2001 The base of home network owners is not only growing, but expanding.
A recent survey by Cahners In-Stat Group (www.instat.com) finds that the base of home network owners is not only growing, but expanding. The home network owner is much more likely to have broadband, always-on Internet access. Home network households are much more likely to own other technology devices such as video game consoles, CD ROM Recorders and digital satellite. A higher percentage of telecommuters live in networked homes than non-networked homes. The primary purchasing decision for home networking equipment was to share an Internet connection, PC resources such as printers and, surprisingly, to share digital music around the home.
