Residential Broadband Speeds Increase Globally

Posted: 29th Nov, 2007 By: MarkJ
The latest research from Point-Topic has revealed that average residential DSL (e.g. ADSL etc.) downstream speeds have increased in all but two regions (North America & Canada / Middle East & Africa) globally from Q2 2007 to Q3 2007.

The Asia Pacific and South and East Asia region has seen the biggest increases, thanks to the introduction of faster ADSL and VDSL technology, with the latter offering downstream service speeds of up to 100Mbps.

The following list shows increases by region between Q2 and Q3-2007:

  • Western Europe (Q2 5227Kbps) (Q3 5552Kbps) +6.22% change


  • South & East Asia (Q2 1543Kbps) (Q3 3582Kbps) +132.15%


  • Middle East & Africa (Q2 1414Kbps) (Q3 1404Kbps) -0.71%


  • North America & Canada (Q2 2966Kbps) (Q3 2971Kbps) +0.17%


  • Latin America (Q2 1280Kbps) (Q3 1652Kbps) +29.06%


  • Eastern Europe (Q2 2292Kbps) (Q3 2443Kbps) +6.59%


  • Asia Pacific (Q2 10800Kbps) (Q3 14989Kbps) +38.79%
Western Europe's growth margin typically comes more from those countries that have been busy adopting ADSL2+ and FTTx technology on a wider scale.
