Broadband gains traction despite economic crisis

More people worldwide are subscribing to high-speed internet connections, despite the economic downturn, with China and other Asian countries among the growth leaders. This was indicated in a study released at the CommunicAsia 2009 trade fair in Singapore last month.
The study showed that the number of broadband lines grew by 16.6 million globally in the last quarter alone to more than 429 million. It said broadband penetration in 20 countries grew by 10 percent or more in the first quarter from the previous three months, with the biggest rise of 13.4 percent coming from India.
