ABI Research Releases New Broadband Subscribers Database

Users purchasing this database will be able to perform their own `data mining` through a familiar browser interface, sorting and exporting the desired information at will as an Excel spreadsheet.

Oyster Bay, NY - May 26, 2005 - ABI Research has announced the release - - scheduled for mid -June - - of a revised edition of their "Broadband Voice, Video and Data Subscriber Database", which offers timely data on global penetration of emerging broadband technologies.


Previous editions of this study have been in the form of research reports, but analyst Joseph Yau says that although the most recent of these reports is still current and still available, the new release will have a new form: that of an interactive database.

Users purchasing this database will be able to perform their own "data mining" through a familiar browser interface, sorting and exporting the desired information at will as an Excel spreadsheet.

"The database will be updated with new information as it becomes available," says Yau, "and users will have access to those updates for twelve months following their purchase."

As well as current and forecast information to 2010, the database contains historical information dating from 2002, so users can plot growth curves over time. Three broadband -related areas are covered: data, video and voice. For data, DSL, cable broadband, and fiber subscriber penetration are all included; on the video side, coverage ranges through cable, satellite, telco TV and terrestrial platforms; while voice subscriber penetration is assessed for VoIP as well as for cable telephony.

Subscriber information for the "top ten" operators around the world is also included, and according to Yau, it shows an interesting pattern: "International broadband subscriber numbers - - largely to DSL services - - have been growing at a faster rate than expected or predicted, particularly in China, France, Germany and the UK."

Founded in 1990 and headquartered in New York, ABI Research maintains global operations supporting annual research programs, intelligence services and market reports in automotive, wireless, semiconductors, broadband, and energy. For information visit www.abiresearch.com, or call +1.516.624.2500.
