A Broadband Dip

By Brad

According to a report from the Leichtman Research Group, the total net broadband additions in 2008 were 37% lower than the year before. From the report:

Leichtman Research Group, Inc. (LRG) found that the twenty largest cable and telephone providers in the US – representing about 94% of the market – acquired over 5.4 million net additional high-speed Internet subscribers in 2008. Annual net broadband additions were down compared to the 8.5 million in 2007, and the peak of 10.4 million in 2006, and were the fewest in the seven years that LRG has tracked the broadband industry.
