Regional - Broadband - Overview of the Americas - 2005

Synopsis

This report was archived in June 2006. Having had an early start, the USA started off with a relatively high broadband penetration, but consequently growth has been slow. Another major impact on the speed of roll-out of broadband infrastructure in the US has been the resistance of the incumbent telcos, protecting their monopoly status. As a result, the US has been passed by Japan and Korea. Canada did not experience this resistance, and has one of the world’s most comprehensive infrastructures and highest penetration rates. Latin America started late, but is showing rapid growth in an effort to catch up. This report summarises the situation in these three areas.
