The firm also reports that one-fourth of German, Spanish, and U.K. broadband households find smart home devices very appealing. In the Netherlands and Switzerland, residential broadband household penetration exceeds 90%, and the increasing adoption of connected devices is creating a need for cloud services in order to share and secure both personal and paid media.
