Fixed Broadband 2018: Global Analysis, Statistics and Regional Overviews - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 24, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 24, 2018--The “Global Fixed Broadband - Analyses, Statistics and Regional Overviews” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Many countries around the world have developed sophisticated mobile networks which are more than adequate for day-to-day communications and mobile broadband internet access. This is particularly evident in many of the emerging markets where mobile networks have thrived in contrast to the slow development of fixed broadband infrastructure. On the horizon is 5G, which is expected to significantly improve mobile services even further in terms of speed, capacity and latency.

With mobile networks becoming so sophisticated, it can be easy to wonder why it is still important to continue to invest in fixed broadband. It requires vision and the acknowledgement that there are important services emerging for a society which depend on high-quality broadband infrastructure. Examples include e-health, e-education, e-business, digital media, e-government, smart meters and smart city development. Fibre-based infrastructure which provides reliable high-speed broadband access is required to underpin the services which can help solve many of today’s social, economic and sustainability problems.

Most homes in the developed markets have both mobile and fixed broadband subscriptions. When out of the home, consumers connect to the mobile broadband network using 3G and in many cases 4G LTE or free Wi-Fi. Most heavy broadband usage on smartphones and tablets takes place in homes, offices, airports, schools, universities, internet cafes, etc.

In many of these situations the Wi-Fi networks are used for this, not the mobile networks - and all of these Wi-Fi modems are linked to the fixed network. The increased use of broadband access from tablets and smartphones will increase demand for fixed broadband access, and so the enormous appetite for mobile broadband will only increase the need for FttP networks.

With this in mind, it is encouraging to see that many of the emerging markets which rely heavily on mobile infrastructure are now seriously investing in fixed broadband infrastructure and developing national broadband strategies. In addition, many emerging markets are supportive of government initiatives to develop international high-speed links and are welcoming the opportunity to connect with large submarine and terrestrial cable systems.
