US Jumps to 24th in Worldwide Broadband Penetration - CSS Mastery Book Review - Optimization Week of August 22, 2007

Optimization Week Issue #84, August 22, 2007

In this issue we've got two new items for you. First up we report on a reversal in a broadband trend for the US. In the first quarter of 2007, the US jumped up one place to 24th in household broadband penetration worldwide. Australia is now 25th, switching places with the US. We also report on a pending change at the top of the broadband charts, assuming current growth rates continue. Next we briefly review a great new CSS book by Andy Budd titled "CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions" that'll help clean up your code and streamline your pages.

Reversing a previous trend, the US jumped to 24th place in worldwide broadband penetration in the first quarter of 2007. While South Korea remains the leading broadband nation, Hong Kong should pass South Korea in household broadband penetration this summer at current growth rates.
