Cable Internet to Reach $50 Billion by 2017

According to ABI Research, cable broadband will account for 25% of the world's fixed broadband subscribers by 2017. Cable digitization efforts in developing economies will be a key driver for cable broadband penetration worldwide, with service revenues expected to reach $50 billion in 2017.

Cable's adoption of DOCSIS 3.0 has been a key competitive strength against telcos offering only DSL service in the United States, Canada and parts of Western Europe. Cable operators in developing regions are entering the market using the latest technologies, often leapfrogging older protocols.
