X

The take-up of broadband services is approaching three million connections, according to the latest Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Snapshot of Broadband Deployment issued today

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Snapshot of Broadband Deployment was issued today. “The report shows that as at the end of December 2005, there were 2 785 000 broadband services connected across Australia.  Of these, more than two million were ADSL connections”, ACCC Commissioner, Mr Ed Willett, said.

Total quarterly growth in broadband was 12.1 percent for the December 2005 quarter.”The December results complete the overall trend of consistent growth in broadband take-up throughout 2005.  Although growth in the December quarter was down on previous quarters, 2005 saw the take-up of broadband services increase by 85 percent, which amounted to an increase of over 1.25 million customers.

“In 2005, it was the take-up of DSL broadband that by far exhibited the strongest growth. However, there was also steady growth in the take-up of broadband delivered by other technologies, including satellite and cable.  There are also signs that take-up of wireless broadband services is beginning to increase, albeit off a limited base”.
