765 million households worldwide will subscribe to a broadband service by the end of 2015

Parks Associates Analyst chairs Day Three of Broadband World Forum in London

Parks Associates research shows approximately 765 million households will subscribe to a broadband service, representing 38% of all global households, at the end of 2015.

The international market research firm also reports that the Asia-Pacific region holds the largest percentage of worldwide broadband households primarily due to the volume in China and Japan, the world’s first and third largest broadband markets. This region is the fastest growing by volume, adding 30 million new broadband households from 2013 to 2014.

Patrice Samuels, Research Analyst, Parks Associates, will chair Day Three of Broadband World Forum’s Connected World conference “Connecting the Unconnected” on Thursday, October 22. The third day of Broadband World Forum’s Connected World conference is dedicated to connecting the unconnected across the globe.
