The global broadband subscriber growth rate is set to slow over the next four years, a research company has predicted.

In-Stat reported that the number of consumers and businesses with broadband deals increased to 763 million in 2010.

This came on the back of 25 per cent annual market growth between 2007 and 2009, the firm stated.

However, it forecast that the growth rate will fall back to ten per cent between 2011 and 2014 – largely due to the increasingly saturated nature of global markets.

Vahid Dejwakh, Industry Analyst at In-Stat, said that fewer new lines would be added over the coming years, but there are still some "substantial gains" to be made by internet service providers around the world.

"The Asia/Pacific region will continue to see very high growth rates, along with Latin America and the Middle East/Africa regions," he predicted.

Earlier this week, Ericsson claimed there will be more than one billion consumers with mobile internet access by the end of 2011.
