North America Telecommunications Reports - Canada and United States


United States of America Broadband Market - Cable modem & DSL - Analysis, Statistics and Forecasts In the US broadband market, while cable modem still retains the majority of broadband subscribers, DSL trails close behind. With DSL growing at a higher rate than cable broadband, DSL subscribers are expected to exceed cable subscribers. Broadband competition in each region is generally limited to one DSL and one cable operator. The DSL segment is dominated by AT&T and Verizon, which account for around 80% of DSL subscribers, while cable broadband is less concentrated with Comcast and Time Warner accounting for around 62% of cable broadband subscribers. DSL and cable modem growth rates are expected to decline over the next five years as household penetration reaches saturation and fibre networks become widely deployed. This report provides overviews, analysis, relevant statistics and forecasts on the US cable modem and DSL broadband markets. Read the executive summary here.


Canada Broadband Market Overview, Statistics and Forecasts Report
Canada currently ranks 11th in the OECD for broadband penetration, down from second place in 2002. In Canada broadband markets also continue to rank poorly in terms of prices and speeds. Nevertheless, government policy has encouraged widespread availability, particularly to rural and regional areas, such that approximately 95% of Canadians live in communities served by broadband access. Cable still leads DSL in terms of subscriber numbers, with DOCSIS 3.0 upgrades reigniting cable subscriber growth, whilst fibre deployments are starting to gain momentum.
