REDWOOD CITY, CALIF. -After casting aside their slower dial-up Internet service, broadband users are more apt to stream audio and video thanks to faster speeds, according to a Harris Interactive study commissioned by Excite@Home Corp.
Following their switch to broadband, 93 percent of users downloaded more MP3 files than they did when connected via narrowband, 89 percent streamed more video, 79 percent transferred a greater number of "large" files and 78 percent shared more photos.
Harris gathered the data last November via online interviews with 587 respondents.
