Infonetics Launches Broadband Subscriber Database of 130+ Service Providers; “Phenomenal Growth” in Asia

Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its new Broadband Subscriber Database by Provider report, which contains demographical information and subscriber data of more than 130 global wireline broadband providers.


“We’re seeing phenomenal growth in fixed broadband subscribers in Asia Pacific, particularly China, where China Telecom and China Unicom continue to add both DSL and FTTH subscribers at a phenomenal pace. Meanwhile, Latin America continues to see moderate growth in both cable and DSL subscribers,” reports Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research.

Heynen continues: “FTTH subscribers in Europe are now showing signs of solid growth, with Swisscom, Free, and Telefonica among a handful of operators moving forward with FTTH.”


  • The top 6 wireline broadband providers by subscriber are, in rank order, China Telecom, China Unicom, Comcast, NTT Group, Deutsche Telekom, and AT&T
  • Fixed broadband subscribers in China totaled 183 million in the third quarter of 2013, up 37% in two years
  • In the Middle East, wireline broadband subscribers grew more than threefold in the same period
  • China Telecom, NTT Group, and Verizon are the leading providers of FTTH services
  • Comcast and Time Warner Cable are the 2 largest cable broadband operators by subscribers in the world, and the merged companies will tout over 31 million subscribers


Join Jeff Heynen March 11 for Extending Copper Access Networks with Vectoring and G.Fast: Why Fiber Isn't a Must, a live event detailing the roadmap for DSL, FTTdp VDSL, vectoring, and G.Fast technologies, and explaining why fiber isn't necessarily a must for operators to compete: http://w.on24.com/r.htm?e=748757&s=1&k=3FA95A7E80E9811BBC75D27914898B02


Infonetics’ quarterly broadband subscriber database tracks fixed broadband subscribers (DSL, cable broadband, FTTB and LAN, FTTH) in North America, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), Asia Pacific, and CALA (Caribbean and Latin America). The database, which includes searchable and sortable pivot tables, data, and charts, provides subscriber data by region, technology, individual service provider, and service provider type (cable operator, competitive, incumbent, independent wireless, satellite). It also includes service provider demographics and a Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) Tracker that lists manufacturer, model, and type of CPE by service provider.
