European Broadband Users to Reach the 10 Million Mark by 2003

Apr 2001
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, April 16 -- Research from Jupiter MMXI, an Internet research company, forecasts that, due mainly to the high price of technology, the adoption of broadband will be slow across Europe, contrary to many of the predictions currently being made in the marketplace. The company also said that lack of competition among access operators and low customer demand were also reasons for the projected slow growth. It currently costs more than 200 euros for a connection and then about 50 euros for a monthly subscription across Europe.
    Jupiter MMXI predicts that take up will be gradual over the next five years, with only 14 percent of European households using broadband by 2005. By that time, 32 percent of online households will be accessing the Internet from broadband.
