6.0 mln African Americans use dial-up
Although decreases in revenues from wireline services are expected from subscribers of all ethnicities, the lowest declines are expected from Hispanic and Asian/Pacific Islander subscribers due to their population growth, In-Stat notes. By 2009, more than 40.4 mln whites are expected to subscribe to broadband. The number of Hispanic and Asian/Pacific Islander subscribers is expected to grow at faster rates, however. African Americans are expected this year to account for the second greatest percentage of dial-up subscribers, nearly 6.0 mln. This number is expected to fall to 4.3 mln by 2009.
