Broadband Internet is one of the fastest growing market segments in Asia. In fact, the region has been leading the world. However, broadband has remained a phenomenon limited to Asia’s developed economies, with dial-up narrowband access still being the norm in the developing countries. Where the market is taking off, both DSL and cable modem platforms have proved popular, with DSL having a clear advantage as in the rest of the world. Asia has become the leading market in the world for DSL, with almost 40% of the worldwide broadband subscriber base and about 38% of the world’s DSL subscribers.

The push towards convergence, using common infrastructure and architecture has gained more momentum with the huge improvements in technology. This has led the market to actively explore the concept of triple-play services involving the unified provision of TV/video, telephony and Internet services. A number of the more highly developed economies in Asia have been moving into the area of convergent and triple-play networks.
