Broadband Slowdown Pushing IPTV

Lightreading published and article that described the slowdown of broadband adoption in the U.S. It quotes a financial analyst as saying that the days of wireline broadband connectivity as a major growth driver of U.S. telecom are largely over.

We see broadband reaching a saturation point with slowing growth rates across Western Europe, North America, and the developed countries of Asia. On the other hand, we see IPTV continuing to grow at high rates in these areas. In fact, IPTV is causing carriers to upgrade their broadband networks to VDSL and FTTH. IPTV has become the engine driving broadband spending in these countries.
