  • Broadband Penetration
UTICA, NY - The expansion of high-speed Internet has had the greatest technological impact on society over the past decade, according to a new survey by Zogby International. It is also the technology most survey respondents believe they cannot live without. The poll of 1,950 adults was conducted from Dec. 8 - Dec. 10, 2010.

Facebook came in a close second (22 percent) to high-speed Internet (24 percent) as the technology having the most impact on society over the past decade. Google was third on that list with 10 percent. Women (27 percent) and adults under the age of 55 believe Facebook has the highest impact, while men (27 percent) and those over 55 say high-speed Internet has had the greatest impact on society. Adults aged 35-54 are split between Facebook (25 percent) and high-speed Internet (24 percent). Young adults, aged 18-24, find Google (25 percent) the second most important invention of the past decade, with Facebook (28 percent) being first.

Of the technologies most people say they cannot live without, high-speed Internet comes in first at 28 percent and e-mail is second at 18 percent. Facebook garnered only 3 percent among all adults. However, 15 percent of young adults (aged 18-24) say they cannot live without Facebook.
