Europe & Africa Satellite Ultra-Broadband Markets Studied in New IDATE Report Now Available at

London, UK, Nov 15, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- Satellite technology has developed to a great extent recently. The average downlink speed has been increased up to 18 Mbps in 2012. The present traffic caps vary from 10 to 20 GB, and, what is more, the unlimited traffic is available. Currently, satellite is less popular than wireless and cellular technologies. So, the future prosperity of the satellite ultra-broadband market is highly dependent on its competitiveness.

While Europe possesses the mature satellite ultra-broadband infrastructure, the market in Africa remains rather poorly developed. There are many market restrains in Africa, including low literacy rates, low electrification, low PC penetration and low ARPUs. Just such a few countries in Africa seem to a have a potential for the market growth. The number of satellite broadband subscribers in Europe during 2012-2016 is expected to enhance by over 27% yearly.

New market research report "Ultra Broadband Satellite" elaborated by IDATE Consulting & Research (IDATE) has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.

Report Details: Title: Ultra Broadband Satellite Published: October, 2012 Price:US$ 4,200.00 The research study analyzes the current state of the satellite ultra-broadband market in Europe and Africa as well as offers the possible scenarios for development up to 2016.

The report provides an overview of the market dynamics, major drivers and barriers. The market segmentation is examined by various criteria. Moreover, the latest trends and technological innovations are also described in the market research.
