Strategy Analytics: Global Broadband Subs to Reach 1 Billion by 2015

  • Broadband Penetration
BOSTON - The total number of broadband subscriptions worldwide will reach 1 billion by 2015, according to a new report by analyst firm Strategy Analytics. The Asia Pacific region, which today claims almost 45 percent of all broadband subscriptions, will lead in subscriber growth, seeing a compound annual growth rate of nearly 18 percent 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 percent 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 percent of households worldwide have no access to the Internet, much less broadband,” says Ben Piper, author of the report and Director of the Strategy Analytics Multiplay Market Dynamics service.
