The connectivity chasms deepen: the growing gap in broadband speeds
TMT Predictions 2015
The global number of broadband homes to have grown by about two percent to 715 million by the end of 2015, expects Deloitte.
We predict that in developed countries, the average broadband speeds obtained by the top decile will be 5x or greater than the lowest decile. Broadband adoption by household is climbing slowly, but as more fibre to the cabinet services are coming on stream, speeds for the top deciles are becoming multiples of those on basic broadband packages / and or living in rural areas. The implication of this is that broadband homes need to be segmented by likely speed available.
