Report: 2M new U.S. broadband subs in Q2
The 21-largest cable and DSL providers in the U.S.–representing about 94 percent of the market–added nearly 2.1 million subscribers in the second quarter of 2006, according to figures from Leichtman Research Group (LRG). Together, these providers total about 48.3 million broadband subscribers.
Cable still has the overall lead, with 26.9 million broadband subs. The telcos tallied 21.3 million DSL subs. The latter group accounted for slightly more than half of all new additions, however, for the seventh quarter in a row.
