Regional - Broadband - DSL in Europe - 2007

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. This report described the broadband market in Europe, with a focus on DSL. The strong European broadband market saw slower growth in the second half of 2006, particularly highly penetrated markets such as the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The report provides in-depth analyses of the industry, country specific statistical information and a look at the various trends and developments, primarily during the 2005 – 2007 period. Since its introduction, broadband has been growing at an astounding rate. The early high growth in a small number of countries, has now spread to most other countries, with the early developers starting to show signs of saturation. Although cable still predominates in North America, DSL is much stronger in the rest of the world, and is also catching up against cable in the USA. Other technologies such as wireless and satellite are minor players. DSL is the most effective and economical route to global broadband deployment.

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
