China - Broadband - Market Overview


Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. As of early 2005, broadband is growing in China at a rate of around 8% per month (close to 100% per annum), with China Telecom being the largest supplier. By March 2005, there were over 28 million broadband subscribers in China. China surpassed Japan in 2004 as the country with the second most broadband lines after the USA. Amazingly, penetration remains comparatively low, meaning there is still much room for growth. The Chinese broadband market is expected to surpass the USA and eventually become the world’s largest broadband market. This report looks at the nature of the market, the players and the direction the market is taking.
