Where high speed is defined as "faster than ISDN" whoopydoopy....

So the correct title would be; 30% of Americans have internet slower than obsolete ISDN.

What year is it?

The year of really cringe worthy studies, clearly.

I am not actually sure that's what the study says. It's pretty damn unclear what constitutes high speed and not high speed. Or what they mean with dial up. Where I live, if you tried to dial via the main line you'd not hear a peep. It's a fully digital connection.

That was my first thought: they must have a pretty low bar for "high speed"

That qualifies as high speed as much as rubbing two sticks together counts as a bonfire.

This is just nationalistic e-peen waving statistic crap. That said, nowhere does the article mention our failed duopoly wired internet system.

Thanks for perpetuating the FCC's horseshit, Pew Research Center.

We REALLY need to redefine high speed to something that's actually high and not just faster then a 14.4 modem.
