Strategy Analytics: Global broadband subs to reach 1 billion by 2015

July 29, 2010
JULY 28, 2010 -- The total number of broadband subscriptions worldwide will reach 1 billion by 2015, according to a report just published by analyst firm Strategy Analytics.

JULY 28, 2010 -- The total number of broadband subscriptions worldwide will reach 1 billion by 2015, according to a report just published by analyst firm Strategy Analytics. The Asia Pacific region -- which today claims almost 45% of all broadband subscriptions, according to the market research firm -- will lead in subscriber growth, seeing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 18% in the next five years.

DSL will remain the dominant access platform, though it will give way to fiber over the next five years. By 2015, one-quarter of broadband homes will connect via fiber, says the report. Service revenues will grow nearly 9% over the forecast period; however, average revenue per user (ARPU) will decline slightly.

“While broadband growth has been impressive, it is important to note that in 2010 more than 60% of households worldwide have no access to the Internet -- much less broadband,” said Ben Piper, author of the report and director of the Strategy Analytics Multiplay Market Dynamics service.

Covering seven discrete regions, the report, Global Broadband Forecast: 1H’10, provides history and five-year forecasts for key metrics including: households, PC penetration, Internet access subscriptions, household Internet access penetration, broadband subscriptions, household broadband access penetration, broadband users, dial-up versus broadband splits, service revenues, ARPU and subscriptions by technology platform (xDSL, cable, FTTx and FWA/WiMax).
