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.
