Regional - Broadband - DSL in the Americas - 2007

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. This report described the broadband market in the Americas, with a focus on DSL. Countries covered include: USA, Canada and Latin America. The report provides in-depth analyses of the industry, 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. The emphasis of the next phase of broadband is on increasing speeds which via ADSL2+ and VDSL eventually will lead to FttH.
