Is broadband Net access recession-proof? By Corey GriceStaff Writer, CNET News.com March 19, 2001, 4:00 a.m. PT As the economy slows, so too might the growth of increasingly popular high-speed Internet connections. .......However, some industry analysts and executives fear that when consumers' pocketbooks slim, people may shy away from broadband access, which typically costs $40 to $50 per month. Others suggest that in-home entertainment, such as Net access and cable TV, becomes more important to consumers who tend to shun movie theaters and dining out as forms of recreation during a recession. Broadband backers also point to cable television's resilience during prior economic downturns as reason for optimism. http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1004-200-5159686.html?tag=mn_hdFooling around,simsim
