This is the result of a recent study by goetzpartners that analyzed the cable markets of EU-countries. In the considered developed cable markets, (with a cable penetration of 25 to 75 percent) the number of cable based internet and telephony contracts has increased by an average 41 percent per year; the number of cable-TV contracts has increased by almost 2 percent per year.
