Global Broadband Subscribers to Double by 2011 to Hit 620 million 

The global broadband market is expanding at a rapid pace, with both equipment revenue and global subscribers expected to increase robustly during the next few years, according to iSuppli Corp. Global broadband subscribers will grow to 622.7 million by 2011, more than double the 270.4 million in 2006.

Broadband equipment factory revenue is set to rise to $15.1 billion by 2011, expanding at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 6.2%, up from $11.2 billion in 2006. 

  • ADSL remained the leading broadband technology around the world in 2006, with 72% of the subscribers
  • Cable modems ended 2006 with 22% market share 
  • Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology offers consumers a 15 times increase in bandwidth compared to ADSL.
  • Household broadband penetration is expected to exceed 50% in the United States and Japan for the first time this year, and will do so in Europe in 2008, iSuppli predicts.

Broadband technology has become a major area of focus for many Internet Service Providers (ISPs), telecommunications firms and cable companies as they fight for supremacy in the market for so-called “triple-play” services, i.e. packages offering a combination of Internet access, voice and television.
