The global average price charged for entry-level broadband subscriptions has increased slightly, according to a new study.

Research conducted by Point Topic indicates that the average cost of the cheapest broadband deals – those providing a minimum of 256Kb downloads – increased between June and September 2010.

DSL and ADSL broadband packages were priced most accessibly, followed by fibre-to-the-cabinet and cable modem deals.

Fiona Vanier, Senior Analyst at Point Topic, commented: "Prices are stabilising in many markets around the world and overall in the last quarter there was an average increase globally."

However, she said there are plenty of countries still rolling out new networks and internet service providers announcing new tariffs.

According to Analysys Mason, there will be 500 million fixed broadband connections worldwide by the end of 2010.
