Cable Modem Benchmark

Cable modem continues to be the major alternative broadband platform to DSL, despite the continued strong growth in rollouts of Ethernet and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) by telcos. Indeed, in a number of cases, cable players are starting to consolidate the latter technologies into their overall broadband network strategies, particularly in Asian countries like Korea.

Our benchmark shows that in most major markets where cable features strongly in the broadband landscape, cable modem growth continues in line with that of overall broadband growth patterns in those countries. Rapid development in cable modem technology, and the move by a number of players up to DOCSIS 3.0 means cable operators are increasingly able to match the high speeds (up to 50Mbps and beyond) now being deployed by telcos. There are a few notable exceptions. In Korea, where cable players are unique in deploying a hybrid technology strategy, operators continue to substitute FTTH for cable modem in broadband rollout.

This benchmark analyses the Ovum top ten cable modem markets in the world. The countries were selected according to a combination of level of household penetration, total number of subscribers and regional cross-section. The countries benchmarked are:

US

Canada

UK

Netherlands

Spain

Belgium
