A new report by Michael Philpott [pictured], Practice Leader Consumer Services, Ovum finds that "In order to support their expectations of their broadband experience, the majority of fixed line consumer broadband users surveyed need a download speed of at least 10Mbps .. the best consumer experience is supported by three key factors:
- a download speed of at least 10Mbps; [related post - "Broadband Minimal Speed is ..." - here]
- a stable and reliable network that delivers content with a wait time of no more than 3 seconds; and
- outstanding customer service that can resolve most customer issues at the first point of contact.
The research, which combined a consumer survey with quantitative market data on the fixed broadband market in 30 countries, confirmed the rise of SD and HD video as a commonplace application that is driving the end-user experience, and hence the need for networks to be able to support high-quality video delivery".
