A government report estimates 68% of U.S. households had broadband access in 2010, up from 64% in 2009. However, only 57% of rural households, and 43% of low-income residents, had broadband. At the FCC's prodding, Comcast (CMCSA) and others have been launching inexpensive Internet plans for low-income households.
