      The numbers....

      With 6% of homes having a weather radio, and nearly 58% of homes with
      broadband access (projected for end of 2007), it seems pretty clear
      which method would have the best odds of alerting the public in case of
      emergencies (weather and otherwise).

      With a 25% growth rate, well, the gap only widens.

      Despite ample evidence that warnings save lives, only 1 in every 10
      homes (6 percent) now has receivers.

      They say that would add up to 58% total US household penetration, and
      about 74% of the total home Internet connections. Pike & Fischer has
      forecasted that there will be 54 million broadband subscribers in the
      US at the end of 2006. The 2007 boost is about 29.6%. In comparison,
      there were 42.9 million subscribers at the end of 2005, and the 2005-to-
      2006 growth was 25.6%.
