Canada - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Government policy has encouraged work to extend broadband availability to rural and regional areas, with the result that a basic service of at least 5Mb/s is almost universally available. Cable still leads DSL in terms of subscriber numbers. Cablecos are beginning to upgrade their networks to the DOCSIS3.1 standard, which can deliver data at 1Gb/s and above. Fibre deployments are also gaining momentum, with a growing number of Gigabit towns now connected. This report provided updated statistics, analysis and forecasts on the Canadian fixed-line broadband sector, providing statistical overviews and an analysis on operator strategies.
