This quarterly "broadband markets" provides a unique overview of the current broadband market based on our ability to analyse worldwide developments through rigorous research and forward-looking quantitative expertise.

Broadband is becoming a central issue in economic development. Just as transport opened up new economic horizons in the last century, advanced communication networks pave the way for productivity gains across global economies in the new century. The ‘always-on’ network effect will change business and user behaviour and revolutionise the way content and services are delivered and managed. Innovative use of broadband connectivity will be critical to companies’ ability to participate and compete in the global economy.

This broadband statistics provide a unique overview of the current broadband market and its growth potential worldwide. Our quarterly and annual data, allows like-for-like examination of broadband growth and market dynamics across covered countries.

The Middle East-Africa region – with nearly 1 million broadband subscribers - has fuelled the fastest quarterly growth with 11.06 percent followed by Europe (9.22%) and the Americas (9.85%). Asia registered the lowest quarterly growth at 8.46 percent but still remains the world’s largest broadband market with 53 million subscribers. Subscriber penetration in the Americas has reached 41.76 million and in Europe 32.8 million.

France with 5.27 million broadband subscribers followed by Germany (5.26 million) and the UK (5.077 million) were the biggest broadband markets in Europe at the end of Q3 2004.

DSL Service Providers added more than 7.8 million new subscribers, representing 72 per cent of the net broadband additions for the quarter versus 2.5 million of cable (23%) and nearly 600,000 using other broadband access technologies (5%). This marks another successful quarter for DSL Service Providers compared to cable operators.

At the end of Q3 2004, nearly 90% of world broadband subscribers were residential. The number of residential broadband subscribers across the world rose to 115.36 million with a 9.24 percent growth over the second quarter. This percentage is nearly 3 points higher than the growth of residential market of Q2 over Q1.

We suggest that the most important factor fuelling broadband growth in advanced markets is the availability of cheaper broadband packages or tariff reductions introduced by service providers. For instance the price of broadband in Europe has fallen by 23% on average since the beginning of the year. This translated into nearly 3 million new residential subscribers across the region.

This report also forecasts double digit growth for the residential segment in the following quarter as the consequence of further price reductions and wider availability of broadband content globally.
