Survey shows steady consumer demand for home networking

A recent survey of 2,500 U.S. households from Parks Associates reveals a steady demand for network connectivity solutions among multiple-PC households. The survey, Bundled Services and Residential Gateways, found that these consumers are most likely to seek home networking solutions based on their ability to share Internet access and peripherals first. A secondary driver for home networking includes entertainment applications.

"This latest batch of research helps us better understand the role of the early-adopter consumer and sheds new light on how home networking will evolve," said Kurt Scherf, vice president of research for Parks Associates. "With a more detailed profile of the purchasers of home networking solutions, we are better able to build forecast models that we believe are more accurate in presenting the outlook for this market."
