I heard yesterday that only 10% of all internet users are on dial-up now.
From one of my web sites last six months which is relatively wide open (general public although science leaning.) By visits it is 2% that are dial up or slower. Since dial up is inherently slower and more frustrating the numbers will bias towards faster connectors so does not really give percent of people out there on tin can on string.
Taking aim at Google's new strategy, Ballmer told the crowd, "I don't know if they can't make up their mind or what the problem is over there, but the last time I checked, you don't need two client operating systems. It's good to have one."
That would be funny if it wasn't so profoundly stupid. Maybe Gates came to hate MS before he left. I can't fathom why else he would've left Ballmer in charge.

Also, how many of those visits are from people's workplaces instead of their homes? No real way to tell. 40% of the country that does not have access to high speed is tens of millions of people. Sure, most people could get satellite but that doesn't help for latency sensitive applications.
