Supporting IPTV Providers

Defining the market and targeting consumers based on broadband speed

Any VOD system that delivers content via an internet connection requires a minimum download speed to function effectively. Higher speeds are needed to watch high definition content. Consumers who fall beneath this minimum threshold will experience a low-quality service or no service at all.

Local targeting

Point Topic model the expected download speeds across 28 countries in Europe. We also forecast the likely availability of superfast broadband in the next five years.

According to our current estimates, 20% of households in Europe cannot receive speeds over 2Mbps – the standard threshold for streaming online content.
