New Website Spell Checking Service - Bush Broadband Goal Gored - Optimization Week of May 17, 2006

Optimization Week Issue #64, May 17, 2006

This time we've got a new Bandwidth Report for you and a new free tool. First, we've just launched a new spell checking web service that automatically scans your site for typographical and grammatical errors. We've teamed up with TextTrust to offer webmasters a free trial of their website spell checking service. Next in this month's Bandwidth Report we find the GAO casting doubt on President Bush's goal of universal, affordable broadband access for all Americans by 2007. While "power users," i.e., active Internet users have broken 70% broadband penetration in April 2006, if you look at all online Americans the number drops to 42% to 48%, depending on which survey you believe.

Bush Broadband Goal Gored - US Broadband Penetration Breaks 70% Among Active Internet Users - Broadband Study Highlights Two-Speed Europe
President Bush's goal of universal broadband access for all Americans by 2007 appears to be in doubt, according to a recent GAO report. Between 42% to 48% of wired Americans subscribe to a broadband service, according to two recent surveys. Among active Internet users, US broadband penetration broke 70% for the first time in April 2006. In Europe, slow adoption among new member states has created a two-speed European Union.
