High-speed Internet connectivity is set to soar in Europe over the next five years, with the region featuring eight of the 10 biggest absolute increases in the latest Broadband Development Index from global analyst firm Ovum. The Index tracks the projected take-up of high-speed fixed and mobile broadband services in 191 countries worldwide from 2013 to 2020.

Ovum forecasts that elsewhere, between 2015 and 2020 India, Nigeria, and Indonesia will significantly improve their positions in the Index. In emerging markets, mobile is often the primary means of accessing the Internet. However, in practice, countries that score highly for fixed broadband development often do likewise in mobile broadband.

Upin Dattani, Senior Financial Analyst, Ovum
In Europe, LTE, fiber, and DOCSIS technologies are being rolled out progressively and broadband connectivity is closing the lead held by developed Asia. Demand for faster Internet connectivity globally, on both mobile and fixed networks, is driving progressive rollouts of 4G and fiber technologies.
