It’s a DSL world, after all

In-Stat: Broadband subscriptions worldwide will more than double over the next four years. Subscribers passed 200 million in February, and the research firm predicts they’ll reach 413 million by 2010. Not 412 million, not 414 million, but 413 million.

It said DSL is still the leading technology, accounting for 69 percent of broadband subscribers, and that in the U.S., 670,000 new subscribers a month are signing up for broadband. Hopefully they’ll also keep subscribing to their local newspaper.
