Executive Summary

Although broadband has been available for some time in Eastern Europe, the advent of full scale fixed-line competition has boosted subscriber levels as incumbents in liberalised markets execute survival strategies centred on offering broadband and convergence services. The results are now being witnessed as convergence services are rolled out. The need for more broadband speed has driven deployment of new high-speed broadband networks centred on ADSL2+ and FttH while wireless has been utilised to rapidly deploy alternative networks and extend connectivity into remote areas. ADSL2+ and FttH deployments will continue in 2008 as triple play services grow in popularity. Other factors also driving broadband uptake include public and private sector network deployment initiatives and an accommodating regulatory environment designed to encourage last mile access and promote competition.

A wide variety of technical solutions are available for accessing broadband Internet. DSL is dominant in most markets, followed by cable. Other technologies include Broadband Powerlines (BPL), fibre, dedicated lines and Wireless Local Loop (WLL).

Countries with the highest penetration have stimulated competition from a number of sources while those with poor broadband take-up are characterised by higher incumbent market shares and insufficient competition. Take up in EU countries is generally higher than non-EU countries due to implemented regulatory regimes designed to promote competition by improving access to incumbent last mile networks as the alternative of duplicating last mile fixed-line access networks in many cases does not create a viable business model for offering broadband.
