FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- London, MAY 27, 2014 –
The market analysis review of fourth quarter of 2013 according to Quantum-Web Telecoms Market Monitoring Service shows statistics for broadband usage throughout the world measured in market share by users. While it is often assumed that the North and Latin America Broadband statistics will be the highest, at a share of 166,470,000 they actually come in second and far behind the Asia-Pacific Broadband statistics, with a market share of 289,550,000. (Figure1).

While certain areas of the Asia-Pacific broadband market, such as India and Bangladesh may be far behind their neighbors in connectivity and speed, countries in the market such as Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong more than counter-act those that lag. This is an interesting statistic given that a large part of the Indian GDP is technologically based and also when compared with the high statistic of internet attacks historically centered as coming from the market area.
The EU 27 Broadband statistics puts their market share as 151,530,000 and slightly behind the North and Latin America Broadband market, however, country markets such as the UK are developing at a high rate, making this market one to watch for growth.
The Europe and Central Asia Broadband statistics put this market share at 56,750,000. Even though they include less developed Central Asian countries, the statistics in this market indicate broadband use and adoption is much higher and more readily received than the 9,750,000 market share of the Middle East market. Part of the issue with adoption in the Middle East market has to do with the current lack of an infrastructure capable of handling the delivery requirements of the market over the pre-conceived idea of non-adoption based on poverty and political unrest. In particular, Jordan stands out as a country on the cutting edge of telecom and broadband usage and adoption, focusing on the future and youth, as are Turkey and Israel.
