Even as mobile broadband grows in tandem, Frost & Sullivan industry analyst Adeel Najam expects fixed broadband uptake to continue. He attributes this to the various government initiatives in rolling-out their national broadband ambitions such as Malaysia's high-speed broadband (HSBB) project, Australia's national broadband network (NBN) and Singapore's iN2015 masterplan. He also expects telcos in developing markets to continue deploying basic xDSL (digital subscriber line) infrastructure.

By next year when most of the government-initiated projects are earmarked for full-scale roll-out, broadband users in Asia-Pac are expected to breach the 200-million-mark closing the year 2010 at 212.6 million.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (communicationservices.frost.com), Asia-Pacific Fixed Broadband Market, finds that the broadband subscriber base in the region - covering 14 Asia-Pac countries including Japan - will grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 14.1 percent annually (2009-2014) to reach 342.9 million subscribers by end-2014. In that same year, the region's household broadband penetration would have risen to 37.2 percent, from only about 18 percent last year, with revenues estimated at close to US$69 billion.

Upon receipt of the above information, a brochure will be sent to you by email.

"The bulk of bandwidth growth and network roll-outs in the next few years will be driven by fibre-to-the-node deployments aided mainly by government spending on national high-speed broadband projects," Najam says, adding that xDSL will however remain the dominant platform in developing markets.

According to Najam, "Consumer appetite for broadband will be spurred by the demand for high throughput value-added services such as IPTV and video-on-demand."

He adds that services such as Web 2.0, social networking, file-sharing, online gaming, as well as falling PC prices and availability of low-cost netbooks have also added impetus towards broadband consumption.

In 2008, the top six Asia-Pac countries with the highest household broadband penetration rates were South Korea - said to be one of the highest in the world - at 92.8 percent, Hong Kong - 85 percent, Singapore - 78.5 percent, Taiwan - 66 percent, Australia - 63.7 percent, and Japan - 62.7 percent. The remaining eight markets have household broadband penetration rates of less than 60 percent.

By number of subscribers, in 2008 China had the most fixed broadband users with 83.4 million (53.8 percent of the region's total subscriber base), followed by Japan with 30 million and South Korea with 15.5 million.

Looking forward, Najam dispels the threat of mobile broadband to fixed broadband services. He believes that both these access services need to co-exist, "In the age of convergence and multi-play services, both wireless and wireline broadband should be viewed as complementing technology to offer subscribers with blended services.

"While mobile broadband has significantly lower throughput than fixed access, it provides residential users with the convenience of 'on-the-go' connectivity," he adds.
