Some 65 million new broadband subscribers signed up for high-speed access over the past 12 months, reports high-tech market research firm In-Stat.

By 2011, total worldwide broadband subscribers will number 567 million, almost double the current 285 million subscriber base, In-Stat said.

According to recent research by In-Stat:

  • DSL and cable modem services are the top access technologies, providing 92% of worldwide broadband connections.
  • By 2011, worldwide DSL subscribers will account for 58% of all worldwide broadband connections.
  • By 2011, there will be over 55 million households using a Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) architecture to provide broadband access.

“The principal market driver for the adoption of broadband service is pretty straightforward: people want to access the internet with a higher-speed connection,” says Mike Paxton, In-Stat analyst.

“Beyond this basic desire, the emergence of online applications such as viewing video clips or TV programming, downloading music files, and even playing online games, are fueling end-user demand for ‘fatter pipes.'”
