[In-Stat]: "Growth of broadband caused by the desire to access the Internet with a high-speed"

The title should surprise anyone, I guess.

Vahid Dejwakh, Industry Analyst for In-Stat, finds in a recent research that "Global broadband subscribers continue to grow fast, with mobile wireless growth, in particular, exceeding expectations. The primary market driver responsible for the growth of broadband subscribers continues to be the desire to access the Internet with a high-speed connection.  The growing popularity of bandwidth-intensive applications, such as watching online video, using IP-based telephony services, and downloading music files, is directly spurring demand for higher-speed Internet connections pushing the number of global subscribers to 763 million in 2010."

See "The Need for Speed Pushes Broadband Subscribers to 763 Million in 2010" - here.

From 2007 through 2009, there was a continued growth rate of 25% in broadband subscribers worldwide .. Though this is expected to slowly decrease to 10% by 2014 as the broadband market matures, there are still some substantial gains to be made. The Asia/Pacific region will continue to see very high growth rates, along with Latin America and the Middle East/Africa regions
