20% of all TV households to have IPTV by year-end 2010

The number of households worldwide with broadband will grow from 184 mln in 2005 to near 400 mln by the end of 2010. The IPTV share of the global digital television market will grow from 6% of all households at the end of 2006 to nearly 20% by the end of 2010, with robust deployment in Asian and European markets in particular. By the end of 2006, there will be 51 mln broadband households in Western Europe. By 2010 that number will have increased to 80 mln, Parks Associates says.
