62% of US dial-uppers say no to upgrading

I find this statistic from the Pew Internet & American Life Project very interesting. You’d think that with the Internet being so rich in content, with streaming video, audio and lots of pictorial information, those disadvantaged by slower browsing speeds would want to go faster. I find it utterly annoying when my connection speed is throttled down to dialup speeds if our download allowance is exceeded, and would never want to have to go back to the old ways of connecting to the Web.

How about you? If you still use dialup, will you ever go to broadband, if not, why not?
