fast lane according to a survey released Thursday by In August more than 61 percent of American visits to the Internet were con nected by broadband which includes cable modems digital subscriber lines and some satellite and fiber connections Nielsen found Thats up from about 51 percent a year earlier Broadband adoption has become an important measure in recent years Many new technologies such as Internet tele phone service require broadband speeds to operate Phone companies SBC Communi cations Inc and Verizon Communications Inc are spending billions to upgrade their networks with fiber to deliver video and broadband to homes Continuing increase in broadband use is an essential step in a maturing said Charles Buchwalter Nielsen vice presi dent of client analytics Compared with their narrowband counterparts broadband users spend more time and money Nielsens survey found that 42 percent of all Americans now have access to broad band at home up from 36 percent in Janu Most analysts expect Americas embrace of broadband will continue but at what rate is uncertain ary It credited a price war for DSL service for aiding the jump Over the last year carriers have responded to the growing demand for lowercost Buchwalter said All indications are that this trend will con Concerned that cable modems are more popular than DSL SBC earlier this year introduced a basic DSL service for a month Verizon followed suit during the summer Phone companies hope that once cus tomers try the service they will want faster DSL at higher prices Cable compa nies have been raising thespeeds offered by cable modem service while keeping monthly charges in the to range Traditional dialup Internet access is in decline as broadband popularity grows In August Nielsen counted 86 million broad band Internet connections which was up 34 percent over August 2004 It counted 54 million dialup visits down 10 percent from a year earlier Nielsens data shows that about 30 per cent of Americans dont have a home Inter net connection of any kind a rate that has remained flat for the year Wireless phone companies are also upgrading their technology to deliver data atspeeds that are comparable to DSL Several wireless carriers now offer video satellite radio and other services over high speed links Most analysts expect Americas embrace of broadband will continue but at what rate is uncertain A report released in late August by the Pew Internet American Life Project suggests that highspeed Inter net adoption is slowing The Pew Projects data indicates that a large group among the people now relying upon dialup connections doesnt use the Internet very heavily and may be disin clined to make the leap to broadband The migration to broadband is happen ing more slowly for dialup users in 2005 than in said John B Horrigan Pew Project research director Todays dialup users are older less educated and with lower income than their counterparts in 2002 These are all factors associated with tepid Internet lo iv r i fc h I ENERGY Crude awakening for airline industry By Eric Torbenson The Dallas Morning News DALLAS Airlines already crumbling under crude oil prices face another eyepopping expense the recordhigh cost of turning crude into jet fuel Since hurricanes Katrina and Rita idled much of the Gulf of Mexicos refining capacity most airlines have been paying an extra premium to refine or crack the oil into kerosene like jet fuel In July before the storms air lines paid the equivalent of per barrel of crude on top of the spot price to keep planes aloft Now the crack spread has spiked to nearly meaning it costs nearly as much to refine the jet fuel as it does to buy a barrel of crude The price of crude rose 44 cents Thursday to a barrel Were just in a classic inven tory said David Frey man vice president of Barnes and Click a Dallasbased energy consultancy At some point were possibly going to see some spot Domestic refineries are geared toward making gasoline and diesel fuel with jet fuel coming in a distant third Gulf refineries produce about half the nations jet fuel many of the damaged refineries wont restart for days and it may be several weeks before they reach normal capacity These things cant be turned on like a light Freyman said The spike in refining costs come at the worst possible time for airlines and the grim outlook for jet fuel was a factor in the bankruptcy filings this month from Northwest Air lines Inc and Delta Air Lines both of which were fully exposed to market prices While both those airlines tried hard to stay solvent fuel prices and the hurricanerelated price spikes made time run out on the said analyst Ray Neidl of Calyon Securities Inc in a note to investors United Airlines expected to reor ganize from bankruptcy next year probably needs to further modify its business plan with oil above a he wrote American Airlines Inc is doing all it can to buy fuel at the lowest prices in different parts of the country away from the Gulf but is essentially forced to pay the brunt of the higher refinery costs The carrier expects to pay billion more this year than last for jet fuel Southwest Airlines Co finds itself in a substantially better position Not only does South west have 85 percent of its jet fuel needs prepurchased at oil prices equivalent to for this year but the lowfare car OJ nc in od rier also has hedged its risk on refining costs for this year m as well said spokesman Ed q Stewart The lingering concern for Southwest remains that its protections will gradually fade Co in coming years The industrys outlook for bothnj crude oil prices and for refining costs isnt pretty The shortterm damage from the Gulf storms isnt completely clear Freyman fij said but more capacity should vo return in a few weeks n Fixing the longterm refinery nr shortage could take up to five years according to Vaughn Cordle of AirlineForecasts nl EXPERT AUTO REPAIR SERVICE TROOPER RODEO PASSPORT SPECIALISTS Volvo Saab
