Hello Severisth,

I will assume you are looking for general percentages (e.g., home
users) since you did not specify the type of user nor location (e.g.,

"Broadband Reports" at
indicates roughly 60% of homes have Internet access and just over
1/3rd of those homes have broadband access. This was for 2003, and
they predicted 2005 to be roughly 50/50 for broadband vs. dial up

Another cross check is at
which lists ISP's by subscriptions. It unfortunately does not have
percentages for large groups like AOL (which has both broadband & dial
up) but note that #2 (a dial up ISP) and #3 (a cable ISP) are almost
equal. Also note that #23 GCI is roughly 60% broadband & 40% dial up.

These two basically say the same thing - about 1/2 of the current US
homes that have internet access are still using dial up. For more
sources, try searches such as
  dial up dsl cable percentage
  chart dial up dsl cable subscribers
and so on.
