54% of U.S. Home Networks Have Wireless
Wireless penetration is increasing very quickly in the U.S. According to Parks Associates, at the end of 2005 54% of U.S. households with a home network have wireless. By the end of 2006, that number increases to 62%, and by the end of 2007 it becomes 72%. In addition, by the end of 2006 almost 1/3 of U.S. households will have a home network!
I got these numbers yesterday from Parks Assosicates, which was hosting its annual Connections conference. This is one of the leading Digital Home conferences around, and Parks Associates is one of the top analyst firms in the space. Kurt Sherf is the lead analyst there.
