Broadband penetration rankings by household

Broadband Penetration Rankings – By Household

Key Takeaways:

  • US Internet & Broadband Adoption Significantly Higher than EU Overall

    • Internet US 70% vs. EU 39%

    • Broadband US 42% vs. EU 23%

  • On a state-by-state basis:

    • The most penetrated US states compare favorably with the most penetrated EU countries (US States would be 8 of the top 10)

    • The least penetrated US states are above the EU average (23%).

Platform competition lacking in europe

Platform Competition – Lacking in Europe

European Competitive Telecom Association (ECTA), ‘Scorecard’ 1st quarter 2006.

The majority of European markets have a small non-DSL infrastructure, and cable penetration – particularly – for most of Europe is at less than 21%.

Unbundling of DSL throughout the EU is, in large part, to compensate for a lack of platform competition.


Record year for bb growth

Record Year for BB Growth

  • 20 largest cable and telco providers in the U.S. combined added over 10.2 million new BB subscribers in 2006

  • For 2006, Verizon added 1.8 million new BB subscribers

  • These providers now serve over 53.3 million BB subscribers, with cable controlling ~55%

Today s u s broadband market is highly competitive

Today’s U.S. Broadband Market is Highly Competitive

Most households can get broadband:

82% DSL

94% Cable

50,000 WiFi Hotspots exist nationwide

Broadband over powerline now competing in dozens of locations

The percent of households subscribing to broadband has exploded:

More than 50% of all homes have broadband

Carriers are offering lower entry prices for their broadband services:

Verizon offers $14.95 DSL

Mobile carriers have introduced new services and networks:

EVDO (700 kbps average speed) available to 255 million Americans

Carriers are improving the high-speed options available to customers:

Verizon FiOS 50 Mbps

Cablevision 16 Mbps

Consumers daily total use is 5.25 hours! Multitasking plays a role. No one form dominates.

Connect kentucky the model

Connect Kentucky – the Model

  • Private-public partnership managed by a non-profit organization

    • Trust, reliance on private sector wherever possible

  • Focus on BOTH supply and demand – build it and they will come not enough

  • Must find out where the “holes” are where broadband is not – mapping

    • Work with companies to get data – strong non-disclosure agreement and non-profit not subject to FOIA

    • Develop effective GIS mapping system

  • Continuously report progress to political leaders

  • Create eCommunity leadership teams

    • Teams consist of local members from nine different groups (listed in next slide)

    • Conduct economic and business analysis

  • Promote deployment – focused on private players first

    • Aggregated demand and market analysis developed through eCommunity work

    • Private players may decline and if so, other options – including RUS loans working with local governments – are used

Connect Kentucky - Mapping


The connect kentucky model works

The Connect Kentucky Model Works

Kentucky has reached 42% penetration of broadband

Kentucky went from among the bottom states on deployment to one of the top five

Kentucky will be at 100% deployment by year’s end


Connect kentucky model produces results

Connect Kentucky Model Produces Results

  • U. S. model – platform competition, remove constraints on investment – has worked and is working

  • Mapping is important but it alone does not produce results

    • In fact it can be harmful if not linked to effective programs focused on encouraging deployment and use

  • Non-profit led, private-public partnership is results focused

    • Community based with objective to “fill the holes”

  • Data comes in many formats – gathering it and effectively teasing out key conclusions is not easy

    • GIS systems are almost rocket science

  • Focusing on the demand/uptake side of the equation is critical too

  • Connect Kentucky results speak for themselves
