Peter Sayer: China could overtake US in broadband access this year

From The Industry Standard:

China will have more broadband Internet access subscribers than the U.S. by the end of the year, if the number of subscribers to broadband Internet access services continues to grow at current rates, according to figures published Monday by market analyst Point Topic Ltd. of London.

At the end of December, the U.S. had 33.9 million broadband subscribers, and China 25.8 million, according to Point Topic.

If those numbers continue to grow at the rates observed by Point Topic during the six months from July to December last year, then China will overtake the U.S. by the end of this year.
