Looking at previous developments in the internet/broadband market it is safe to say that from now on demand for FttP connections will around the globe only increase. Most heavy broadband use on smartphones and tablets takes place in homes, offices, airports, schools, universities, internet cafes, etc, and in most of these situations the WiFi networks are used for this, not the mobile networks. And all of these WiFi modems are linked to the fixed network. The increase of broadband access from tablets and smartphones will increase demand for fixed broadband access, and so the enormous appetite for mobile broadband will only increase the need for FttP networks.

Countries are viewing the developments in broadband infrastructure as a utility, similar to models used for gas, electricity and water, and such a model is the key to universally affordable broadband access. Treating the infrastructure separately from the services would bring telecoms investments more in line with that notion and therefore make investment in pure infrastructure models (such as FttP) more effective.

In 2017 there are over 930 million fixed broadband subscribers worldwide and by the end 2021 it is expected there will be over 1 billion fixed broadband subscriber lines.

Asia continues to represent a massive presence in the global broadband market in terms of both fixed and mobile broadband services. The region in fact makes a strong claim to be leading the world in the development of broadband internet. China is the global leader in terms of the number of fixed broadband subscribers, followed by the USA. South Korea offers the fastest average fixed broadband speeds worldwide.

Deployments based on Fibre-to-the-Premises will continue to gain momentum as some countries continue to develop National Broadband Networks (NBNs). In 2016, 151countries worldwide had NBN policies in place; a rise from 148 in 2015.

This report provides a valuable overview and analysis of the global broadband market, supported by key broadband statistics. The report identifies the leading broadband markets and provides important information surrounding global broadband subscribers, access technologies (including submarine cables), speeds and pricing. It includes analyses on the role of fibre technologies in the future and its role in supporting developments in the mobile industry.

Latest developments:

The demand for rich media and high-speed broadband services is going through the roof.
South Korea is considered to be a global broadband leader and in Q1 2017 offered the fastest average broadband speeds worldwide.
Singapore however offers the fastest peak broadband connections as of Q1 2017.
In terms of broadband access technologies FttX now accounts for the largest market share worldwide at the expense of DSL which is in decline.
Global broadband prices are declining in many markets around the world, making it more affordable and more obtainable to the greater population.
Submarine infrastructure continues to be developed for international communications as it can carry more data and provide faster connection speeds than the other alternative, satellites. It is estimated around 95% of international traffic is carried by undersea networks.
