China Tops DSL Subscriptions Worldwide.

The DSL Forum released figures showing the top 20 subscribers up to the third quarter this year.

The figures show that by region, the European Union has the largest regional DSL population worldwide for the first three quarters of this year - amounting to 26.5 million for the period. But such comparisons with other regions such as the Middle East and Africa and the Americas are a little misleading, given the spread and population demographics of these areas.

A better guide is by country. The DSL forum said that China added 5.14 million subscribers during the period, which accounts for over 90 per cent of the South and South East Asia totals. Latin America is showing a surge, with 1.2 million subscribers between January and September, amounting to 1.2 millions - half of these are accounted for by Brazil, with Mexico, Argentina and Peru the next three major countries in line.

Here's the DSL Forum's top 3, by country.

Top 3 DSL Subscribers: -

1. China:13,700,000
2. Japan: 12,739,564
3. USA: 12,594,346
