Infonetics Launches Broadband Subscriber Database of 130+ Service Providers; “Phenomenal Growth” in Asia

Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its new Broadband Subscriber Database by Provider report, which contains demographical information and subscriber data of more than 130 global wireline broadband providers.

ANALYST NOTE

“We’re seeing phenomenal growth in fixed broadband subscribers in Asia Pacific, particularly China, where China Telecom and China Unicom continue to add both DSL and FTTH subscribers at a phenomenal pace. Meanwhile, Latin America continues to see moderate growth in both cable and DSL subscribers,” reports Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

Heynen continues: “FTTH subscribers in Europe are now showing signs of solid growth, with Swisscom, Free, and Telefonica among a handful of operators moving forward with FTTH.”
