Highlights

In the six months ended 30 September 2007:

  • The number of non-analog (broadband) subscribers overtook the number of analog (dial-up) subscribers and became the dominant connection technology for the first time ever.
  • Broadband subscribers increased 14.4 percent, to 829,300. However, the growth rate has slowed.
  • Of the additional 10.6 broadband subscribers per 100 inhabitants in the two years to September 2007, 5.3 subscribers switched from dial-up and 5.3 were new subscribers.
  • There was a 47 percent increase in the number of Internet service providers (ISPs) reporting that the cost of international bandwidth had been a barrier to their growth in the past two years.
