Asia dominates global Broadband growth story; India poised to enter Top Ten

Asia is, where IT's all happening on the broadband front, accounting for 42 percent of the world's fixed broadband connections; with the fastest growth any where in the world --61.21 percent. In other ways too, global broadband is growing faster than any time after 2009, figures announced by the Broadband Forum at a press briefing on the sidelines of the CommunicAsia 2011 show in Singapore, showed.

While India does not make the cut for the TopTen broadband countries -- led by China, the US, JapAn, Germany and France, it figures among the 20 fastest growing broadband nations, with a year on year growth of 30.72 percent. But at no. 13, it is pipped for growth by neighbours Pakistan ( no.4) and Sri Lanka (no. 10) the data compiled by analysts Point Topic reveal.
"Broadband is now a utility" suggests Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum; but he adds that this does not mean that industry players merely roll out services. " Two-thirds of many telecom industry budgets still go into innovation", he adds.

Oliver Johnson, CEO of Point Topic said: "There is increasingly keen competition to be in the global Top Ten of broadbandcountries. As India and Mexico jostle to break into the charts it is likely that Italy will drop out, probably before the end of the year."

Within broadband, IPTV -- Internet-driven television -- showsd exceptional growth rates with an increase of over 34% in the 12 months to the end of March 2011. And interestingly good old DSL is still up there among the most favoured access technologies and beating fibre with a 20 % increase in itssubscriber base in the last 12 months.
