Cable Moves Toward the Big 3-0

"Though the premise of Parks Associates‘ report on broadband penetration is a little far afield, it does provide food for thought. The report’s main conclusion is that by 2012, 33 million homes in the United States will have broadband with speeds of 10 Mbps or higher. Just a bit more than half of that number — 5.7 million, or 9 percent of U.S. broadband homes — had such speeds at the end of last year."

"The interesting quote is from Yuanzhe (Michael) Cai , the firm’s director of broadband and gaming and, presumably, the writer of the report. He suggests that high bandwidth deployments to date have been driven by competition between the cable and telephone industries."

From the blog, "Cable Moves Toward the Big 3-0," by Carl Weinschenk.
