Tablet News Users Say Their Consumption of News Has Increased – Pew Research Center

The fast growing use of mobile devices has raised questions about the impact on the consumption of news. Are people who own mobile technology getting more news now that they have more ready access to it? Or are they merely replacing one platform with another?

While most (55%) of tablet news users say the news they get on their tablet is replacing news they would have gotten in other ways, nearly as many (43%) say the news they get there is adding to the overall news they consume.

Tablet News Users Say Their Consumption of News Has Increased

Looking at those who get news across four platforms — tablet, smartphone, laptop/desktop and print — a solid majority (58%) say the news they get from a tablet is adding to the overall amount of news they consume.

In addition, almost a third (35%) of tablet news users say they are spending more time getting news now that they have a tablet. That is nearly identical to the 30% who responded that way in 2011. Just 12% say they get less news now. Read more

Most Have Broadband Internet Connections at Home – Pew Research Center

Two-thirds of American adults (66%) now have a high-speed broadband internet connection at home.

High-speed access to the internet at home has grown sharply in recent years and the “always on” connection typically increases the frequency with which people use the internet. More than eight-in-ten adults (85%) now say they use the internet.

In February 2001, when about half of adults were online, only 4% of American households had broadband access.

Most Have Broadband Internet Connections at HomeAccording to data collected in the spring of 2012, seven-in-ten whites and roughly half of African Americans (54%) and Hispanics (51%) have high-speed internet access at home. Read more …
