High speed Internet access, including ISDN, LAN, cable modems and DSL connections, jumped more than 148% among home users in December 2000, compared to the same period in 1999, according to Nielsen//NetRatings. Nearly 12 million home Web users accessed the Internet with a high-speed connection in December 2000, compared with five million people a year ago.
