China overtakes US as largest broadband market – study

Posted on: September 29, 2008

The latest data from Point Topic shows that China has overtaken the US to become the largest broadband market worldwide. Both markets had around 78 million broadband lines at end-August, but with China growing twice as fast as the US.

New broadband lines in the US dropped from 3.4 million in Q4 2007 to almost 1.1 million in Q2 2008. In China, new broadband connections jumped from 3.5 million to 5 million over the same period. Point Topic data shows that the US had almost 76.9 million broadband lines at end-June 2008, with China less than 900,000 lines behind on 76 million. Point Topic expects the US to show some improvement in Q3 2008, with growth in China falling back a bit. However, it is almost certain that China will come on top when the final data for Q3 2008 comes in.
