About This Report

 

The Canadian Internet Service Providers Market Report, 2006 Edition is NBI/Michael Sone Associates’ eighth report on the Canadian Internet market and continues to be the most comprehensive and rigorously researched document available on the subject.

At over 100 pages, this edition of the report has been reorganized and is divided into five main sections. The first is a short introduction that provides a qualitative overview of the market offers some of our thoughts regarding the current condition and future direction of the Internet. The next serves as an executive summary of the ISP business that discusses major issues, developments and technology pertinent to the industry including the decline in dial-up access and the continued growth of market penetration of high-speed cable, DSL and wireless access technologies. This overview is punctuated with two figures illustrating seven-year subscriber and revenue growth trends in the ISP industry. The third section provides qualitatively and quantitatively intensive individual profiles of over a dozen-and-a-half significant national and regional ISPs. These include the individual telco, cableco and other carriers, as well as the larger independent, non-aligned ISPs. The fourth section offers a brief overview of ILEC wholesale services, while last section contains a series of detailed exhibits that illustrate dial-up, high-speed and dedicated subscribers & revenues, market shares, provincial segmentation and forecasts through 2008. Each industry segment has been explored so that the report presents services offered and planned, marketing activities, pricing, as well as technology and application trends.

Please note that the mobile Internet market is examined and discussed in depth in NBI/Michael Sone Associates’ Canadian Mobile Wireless Communications Services Market Report, 2005 Edition. ISP subscriber totals and revenues in this report’s exhibits do not include mobile Internet customers. Also, growing interest in fixed wireless access has prompted us to examine this market separately and in greater depth than hitherto. Please refer to our upcoming Canadian Wi-Fi/WiMAX Market Report, 2006 Edition for information on this rapidly evolving market sector.
