    Almost one in four people with broadband internet admit signing up in order to download pornography, according to a survey published today.

    Faster access to adult entertainment was the second biggest reasons why users installed the technology in their home.

    The top reason for getting broadband was to download music from the internet, according to the poll by telephone and internet company Homecall.

    More than 5,000 people were questioned face-to-face in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff and Birmingham earlier this month about their reasons for getting broadband.

    A third said it was to download music, 23% to download adult services, 12% for music videos, 9% to listen to online radio, 8% to download movie trailers and 5% to share information with family and friends.

    "Broadband in the home has really taken off," a Homecall spokesperson said. "We have been able to keep in touch with family and friends via email on dial-up, but having high speed internet access in the privacy of our own home allows us to use the service for entertainment as well."

    Broadband allows access to the internet at up to 10 times faster than existing dial-up connections.

    If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.

    Broadband was the only option because of the amount of computers we have. For actual business reasons i could get away with a dial up for the amount of data sent however the inconvenience of having to have a phone line tied up or logging on frequently to check mail would make it unworkable.

    As for porn i will say that as a home with young children i don't view it. I have no objection to adults seeing it if they wish however these days it's not for me. Oddly enough i have never missed it.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Porn, it's what keeps Armus alive. That and the Robo. Oh how warm and sympathic I am towards people then. Unlike I normally are.
