The In-Stat report, "Cable's Triple Play: Worldwide Video, Voice, and High-Speed Data Subscribers," indicates the following:
* Latin America will have more than four times as many cable telephony subscribers in 2014 as compared to 2009.
* On a worldwide basis, cable TV subscriber households increased by 3% between October 2009 and September 2010. During that same 12-month period, cable modem and cable telephony service subscribers grew by low double-digit percentages.
* Between October 2009 and September 2010, China added approximately 15 million new subscriber households.
* A combination of economic stress and cutthroat competition from satellite TV and telco TV service providers has driven down total U.S. cable TV subscriber households by more than 1 million in the past year.
