High-speed DSL broadband subscriptions to grow, says IHS iSuppli
More people will be able to enjoy high-speed broadband as companies begin the race to provide very-high-bitrate digital subscriber line (VDSL) technology.

According to IHS iSuppli, estimates show that by 2014, the number of people subscribing to VDSL to meet their home broadband demands will have quadrupled to 60 million.

Lee Ratliff, senior analyst for broadband and digital home at IHS, said that interest is "waning" for methods of internet service delivery such as cable or ADSL.

He explained: "The telco broadband market is undergoing a seismic shift. Newer technologies such as VDSL and fibre to the home have begun to emerge."

Home internet users are demanding higher speeds due to the number of things they can now do online, the research claimed.

The Foundation's inaugural Innovation Index recently found that consumers believe home broadband is the best invention of the last ten years, with online shopping coming in second place.
