It provides market size, installed base market share, and four-year forecasts of broadband access technologies.

The study finds that in 2007, the installed base comprises 92 million broadband Internet lines. This is projected to grow to 118 million lines and a total market revenue of € 34.6 billion in 2011. However, there are major differences between markets in different countries, say analysts.
