Campbell, CALIFORNIA (April 9, 2015)—Technology market research firm Infonetics Research, now part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), today released excerpts from its new FTTH, DSL, and Cable Subscribers report, which tracks and forecasts global fixed broadband subscribers, including DSL, cable broadband, FTTH, and FTTB+LAN subscribers. (Infonetics tracks mobile broadband subscribers in its Mobile Services and Subscribers report.)
“Fixed broadband subscribers grew 8 percent in 2014, reaching 733 million as service providers around the world continue to steadily add subscribers. This is a reflection of the importance of broadband connectivity in the daily lives of individuals and businesses, governments and other organizations,” said Jeff Heynen, research director for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research, now part of IHS.
“Broadband has become a consumer-driven industry. Consumers essentially saved the fixed broadband business by binging on Netflix and other streaming video services, and now broadband providers are consistently investing in higher-end FTTX and DOCSIS 3.0 technologies to keep those innovators happy,” Heynen said.
