Synopsis

Asia continues to represent a massive presence in the global broadband market in terms of both fixed and mobile broadband services. The region in fact makes a strong claim to be leading the world in the development of broadband internet. Asia owns almost half of the world’s mobile subscribers and a huge number of those customers are now accessing broadband services via their mobile telephone. At the same time the transition to fibre-based broadband services has been happening faster in Asia than anywhere else, strongly underpinning the importance of delivering fixed high speed broadband services to both home and office. On the back of the mobile and broadband market segments and their respective capabilities, Asian nations have been busy building a formidable alliance with the digital economy; hence the huge demand for data-handling capacity. This Special Report takes a broad look at the Asian market and the way it is applying a range of broadband technologies. In the process of reviewing the region, the report features some of the Asian economies that are driving the market with interesting and innovative strategies.
