    The broadband data, which is analysed in detail in the report, shows that the number of broadband subscriptions grew from 3,6-million at the end of 2010 to an expected 8,2-million by the end of 2012 – 128% growth. Many users have multiple forms of broadband access – such as an ADSL account as well as 3G – while many hop between operators to take advantage of promotional offers.

The number has grown from 2,8-million to 6,7-million – 140% growth in just two years.
