China - Broadband - Broadband Services


Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. As of early 2005, China continues to be the leading ADSL country in number of lines (and number of new lines being added each quarter), and there is little chance that the country will be surpassed as the world’s top ADSL country. WiFi is also starting to appear in the market, though there have been serious international disputes over regulations. This report examines broadband networks and access methods, including cable modems, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), fibre optic, satellite, powerline and wireless broadband access. In addition, this report looks at broadband services such as videoconferencing, Video on Demand (VoD) and IPTV.
