Over 1 Billion Global Broadband Subscribers by 2013
Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
As of December 2009, there were 578 million worldwide broadband subscribers, an increase of 99 million over the year-end 2008 subscriber total.
DSL, mobile wireless, and cable modem service are the leading access technologies, providing 89% of worldwide broadband connections.
Mobile wireless broadband is the second largest access technology (behind DSL) with 18% of total subscribers.
Over the next few years, the number of households with multiple broadband connections will increase significantly. These multiple connection households will commonly have a wired broadband access technology, like DSL or cable modem service, along with a mobile wireless broadband connection.
Mobile VoIP—Transforming the Future of Wireless Voice

However, the mobile industry is also beginning to use mobile VoIP as a component in new offerings. MVNOs and 3G operators without legacy networks are using mobile VoIP to more cost effectively add voice to data offerings and a few carriers are using a form of mobile VoIP, UMA, to support better indoor coverage and off-load macro networks.
