Broadband and Internet Infrastructure

The number of Internet users and subscribers in OECD countries continues to grow rapidly. At the end of 2005, there were 265 million active subscribers to fixed Internet connections and, of these, 60% were using broadband access. Broadband subscriptions have increased by more than 60% a year over the last five years. This chapter studies the growth of the Internet with particular attention to broadband. Other key topics include the number of Internet hosts and the rise in “bot infections”. The chapter also includes data and analysis of domain name registrations, the growth in autonomous systems, the move from IPv4 to IPv6 and peering arrangements.
