From ITworld: China could overtake US in broadband access this year
"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."
"Six of the top 10 countries ranked by broadband market penetration are now European, according to Point Topic. South Korea still leads the world for the proportion of broadband subscribers in its population, closely followed by Hong Kong, but the Netherlands and Denmark are closing the gap, the company said."
