Worldwide Broadband ISP Subscribers Top 451 Million in Q3 2009

Posted: 16th Dec, 2009 By: MarkJ
Analyst firm Point Topic UK has released its latest World Broadband Statistics Report for the third quarter of 2009, highlighting a worldwide growth in broadband ISP subscribers of 3.18% between Q3 and Q2. This represents a decrease in broadband growth over the same period last year, when it grew by 4.15%. There are now 451.94 million broadband subscribers globally.

Global broadband population penetration was 7.8% by the end of Q3 2009, up from 7.6% at the end of Q2 2009 and up from 6.8% a year ago. Global household penetration was 28.7%, up from 27.8% in Q2 2009 and up from 25.1% a year ago. The regional share of broadband subscribers has remained largely unchanged, though South and East Asia saw a rise of +2% from 22.76% in Q4 2008 to 24.81% in Q3 2009.
