America's Internet Leadership
The history of broadband in America reflects rapid expansion, ongoing investment and efforts to facilitate its growth. Cable’s private sector has invested more than $245 billion in infrastructure since 1996. Notably, cable’s robust fiber-rich broadband networks are available to 93 percent of all American households and 85 percent of U.S. homes are passed by cable technology capable of supporting broadband speeds of 100 Mbps or higher. Faster speeds are driving the creation of services and apps that are opening up new opportunities. The average rate of all broadband connections is nearly 30 Mbps, nearly double the global average.
