CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J. -- A recent report by Probe Group, Broadband Connectivity in Canada, Mexico and the U.S., finds that although cable modem connectivity dominates DSL by a 2 to 1 margin, DSL connectivity will gradually close the gap with the number of cable modems doubling by 2009 but the number of DSL connections tripling, according to Probe Group Research Director Alan Mosher. The report from Probe Group forecasts the market for IP connectivity in North America.

Connectivity by analog modem is in decline in the region although Probe anticipates continued analog modem growth in Mexico through 2009. "Telemex is finally beginning to get serious about rolling out DSL," Mosher said, "but DSL will not pose a challenge to analog modem connectivity in Mexico through 2009."

Probe's recent report, "Broadband Connectivity in Canada, Mexico and the U.S.," forecasts the number of Internet connections, by access method, for the North American region. Consumer/ SOHO, small and medium businesses and large enterprises are covered. In addition, country level forecasts are presented for the individual countries in the region. This report is part of the Worldwide Broadband Access Model service, which provides ongoing analysis of worldwide IP connectivity.
