The demand for high bandwidth broadband will reach more than 640 million worldwide by 2013, says a report released by a research firm.
The analyst firm reports that the number of broadband households worldwide grew by over 18% in 2008 to exceed 400 million.
The research firm added that US broadband market will receive a boost from the announcement of Obama Administration, which released four billion dollars from its stimulus packages.
The Asia-Pacific market will pace global broadband deployment and adding that the region will account for more than 49% of the worldwide total market share by 2013.
At present, the Asia-Pacific region accounts for about 160 million broadband subscribers.
The firm further said, bandwidth will continue to be a focus as the operators re-architect their networks to deliver multiple services over the same infrastructure. But, the blended applications, like combining services such as online video and customer support, will offer operators an opportunity to increase average revenue per user.
