Point Topic has released its latest global fixed-broadband take-up forecasts, which show that fibre-to-the-home is rapidly killing ADSL across the globe.
The report, titled “The next billion: markets and technologies that will drive broadband in the next decade”, shows that fibre will continue to drive broadband take-up worldwide.
Between 2018 and 2025, fixed-broadband take-up in the top 30 markets is expected to grow by 22%. Global take-up is expected to grow by 24%.
In the same period, fibre-based connections are expected to grow by 51% while VDSL services are expected to increase by 28%.
ADSL connections, however, are expected to decline by 39% by 2025 – a consequence of the growing popularity of fibre-to-the-home services.
The chart below shows the change in broadband technology market shares between 2008 and 2025.
