Asia-Pacific Home Networks Go Mainstream

Interest in advanced home networking applications is building in the Asia/Pacific region, reports In-Stat. Given the region's advance use of mobile data applications, I'm not surprised by this latest market research.

Although home automation, home security, and network support services remain at the early stage of market adoption, home PC users in the region are receptive to them, the high-tech market research firm says.

This conclusion is based on the results of a recent In-Stat consumer market survey of PC users in six Asia/Pacific nations.

"Early adopters of digital home devices and applications within the Asia/Pacific region are in both developed and developing economies," says Victor Liu Zhoujiao, In-Stat analyst. "People are actively seeking affordable solutions to improve their home connectivity and quality of information for work and entertainment at home."

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

- Cable modem and xDSL remain the two major choices of broadband connections in the Asia/Pacific region, while fixed broadband wireless and FTTH/X are emerging as mainstream options.

- More than 60 percent of survey respondents have more than one PC at home.

- About half of respondents that intend to purchase a network router have indicated the intent to go to retail stores for their purchase.
