Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. This report described the broadband market in Asia Pacific, with a focus on DSL during 2006 - 2007. Countries covered include: Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand. DSL technology has been playing a significant role in Asia as the broadband Internet access platform of choice for some years now. It has made obvious good use of the incumbents’ copper networks; constant improvements in technology have allowed DSL to reach more customers and provide more reliable service. However, in the last year or so we have seen the start of a migration away from DSL to fibre-based services as the market looks to ever increasing speeds. So far this trend is only evident in the developed markets - South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Much of the region is still embracing DSL. This report provides a regional overview of the DSL market together with some relevant statistics.
Moreover, the customer service personnel at BuddeComm helped me remedy an administrative problem within 5 minutes of sending the request...seriously, less than 5 minutes. All in all, Budde.com is a well-functioning organization with a useful product.
