Canada has one of the highest broadband penetration rates among the OECD nations. Government policy has encouraged widespread broadband availability, particularly in rural and regional areas, resulting in 98% of Canadians being able to access broadband services. Cable still leads DSL in terms of subscriber numbers. The upgrade of networks with DOCSIS 3.0 technology has ignited cable subscriber growth, given that services of up to 200Mb/s have become more widely available. Fibre deployments are also gaining momentum. Prominent WiMAX network deployments include those of Barrett Xplore and Shaw Communications, which has abandoned plans for a cellular network in favour of WiMAX/WiFi. The regulator has also upgraded the targets for basic broadband to be 5Mb/s downloads by the end of 2015. This should lead to a period of sustained development in the Canadian regional broadband sector. This report provided updated statistics, analysis and forecasts on the Canadian fixed-line and mobile broadband sector, providing statistical overviews and an analysis on operator strategies.
