The latest research from Point-Topic reveals that global broadband subscribers have now topped 313,000,000. Roughly 65.87% (200m) of that figure connect using xDSL (ADSL etc.) technology, 21.89% use cable, fibre (FTTx) accounts for 10.80% and satellite holds a measly 0.28%; other technologies (e.g. wireless) accounted for under 2%:

The USA has the most broadband subscribers (over 63 million), but China tops the DSL subscriber list with over 44 million of its 59 million broadband users connected via DSL. 15 countries now have over three million DSL subscribers, and 29 have over one million subscribers, with Portugal passing the one million mark in the second quarter of 2007.
