– Fixed Broadband Market – Overview and Statistics”
report has
been added to’s offering.

Within the Australian fixed broadband market, there is a dynamic shift
among customers to fibre networks, as this infrastructure is being built
out by nbn (NBN Co), the company responsible for the national broadband
deployment. Australia’s broadband sector is making improved progress in
its migration to a multi-technology NBN.

The annual growth rate in the overall number of broadband subscribers is
expected to continue to slow into 2019, with most growth coming from the
mobile wireless and fibre broadband markets, due to increased uptake by
the nbn is these two segments.

The DSL sector is expected to shrink as customers are migrated to the
NBN in areas where services become available, while subscribers on HFC
infrastructure will continue to be provided by existing cable within the
NBN’s multi-technology mix. Commercial cable services based on the
DOCSIS3.1 standard are anticipated in 2018-19.

The DSL sector is still showing resilience as operators make greater use
of VDSL, while nbn has trialled G.Fast technology and expects to provide
services shortly.

The fixed-line broadband market continues to grow steadily as the nbn
rollout gains momentum, although overall penetration is predicted to
grow slowly over the next five years to 2023.

Internationally, the adoption of broadband ranks Australia below many
other developed countries, however the Australian market has seen a
moderate increase over the past two years due to the continued rollout
of the nbn.

Consolidation within the broadband market, with some key acquisitions
having taken place among fixed broadband service providers, will provide
greater reach and scale for operators in coming years.
