A new survey indicates about 31 million U.S. homes, or 29% of the U.S. population, doesn't have Internet and those residents don't plan to subscribe to any access for the next year.
In addition, 44% of households aren’t interested in any Internet content.

Some of those Internet abstainers, some 14%, say they do all their Internet surfing at work and have no need to buy access at home. 22% say they just can’t afford access while 17% say they aren’t sure how to even use the Internet.

But there is a silver lining in the report for Internet addicts, the number of households with broadband access grew from 42% in 2005 to 52% in 2006.
