"The deployment phase is now in full flow," says David Mercer, VP, Consumer Practice at Strategy Analytics. "The challenge is now to repay that investment by developing compelling new services and applications, and to maximize revenue streams."

Key strategic broadband battlegrounds will emerge at a number of levels: access terminal (PC/TV/appliance), access network (cable, telco, satellite, fiber), and software platform (OS, middleware). Content developers and service operators must appreciate these competitive dynamics, if they are to reach 220 million broadband households across North America and Europe in 2005.

"The consumer media and technology industries are entering an exciting period in their history," notes Michael Mascioni, Senior Analyst with Strategy Analytics' Consumer Practice. "The coming decade will provide numerous challenges as well as opportunities. The winners will be those who think beyond today's entertainment concepts, recognizing the potential of broadband technologies to deliver richer, deeper, immersive experiences."
