Broadband Services: Global Outlook

This report analyzes the growth prospects for broadband services around the world, including the impact of the global recession on consumer adoption and spending. It also examines major broadband service features, trends, and shifts in current business models designed to monetize investments in next-generation broadband infrastructures. It also includes forecasts of broadband adoption by household for the world as well as by region.

“The need for information and communication services persists despite current recessionary economic conditions,” said Jayant Dasari, research analyst, Parks Associates. “Consumers are less likely to cancel Internet access and broadband services than other residential services, such as phone services, pay TV, and monitored security. However, with the commoditization of bandwidth, service providers have had to adjust business models to remain competitive, which includes marketing bundled services.”
