Publication of Sophisticated broadband services report for the Department of Trade and Industry

This document is the first report of the study commissioned to Analysys by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to examine the market for sophisticated broadband services across the G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and USA), Australia, Ireland, South Korea and Sweden.

This report summarises Analysys’s findings on the performance of these countries regarding both the availability (coverage) and usage of sophisticated broadband services.

The availability (coverage) data is estimated at the end of the first quarter of 2005. The usage data is estimated to the end of 2004. The coverage findings are based on a sample of 211 fixed and mobile broadband infrastructure operators identified across the 11 countries under study. Coverage results are provided for asymmetric, symmetric and mobile technologies. The usage findings are based on estimates produced by Analysys through reference to free, publicly available data sources.

Two further reports will be produced as part of the study: one in October 2005 and the second in April 2006.
