Fixed Broadband to Hit $217 Billion in 2016

According to ABI Research, competitive pressures to offer faster broadband access are expected to spur an upward trend in 2012 with global fixed broadband revenue expected to generate $191 billion and reaching $217 billion in 2016.

Strong growth in both subscription and service revenue propelled the global fixed broadband market during 2011. Significant subscriber additions last year were made by all fixed platforms: DSL, cable, and optical fiber. In some countries with a high penetration of DSL broadband service, the DSL subscriber base declined slightly, but it was offset by the growth in optical fiber subscriptions.
