"Fixed Broadband Market Trends and Opportunities in Europe", a new Telecom Insider Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the fixed broadband market in Europe. It delivers quantitative and qualitative insights into the fixed market, analyzing key trends and growth drivers in the region.

Given the developed telecoms infrastructure in Western Europe, growth in fixed broadband over 2018-2023 will be primarily driven by increased investments in networks and infrastructure deployments by the operators. European Union's initiative Digital Agenda 2020 aims to provide minimum speed of 30Mbps to the entire population in member countries by 2020 and of 100Mbps by 2025. Regional disparities persist between the WE and CEE regions, with penetration of fixed broadband remaining lower in CEE countries. Declining cost of fixed broadband is expected to improve the affordability over the forecast period, fostering adoption of broadband services in CEE. Investments by European telcos in deploying FWA and satellite technologies to improve speed and coverage in underserved areas will support growth in adoption of broadband services.
