The DSL modem market slowed a little in the last quarter as subscription rates were damaged by a strike at Verizon. However, despite this, the introduction of the DOCSIS certification bolstered the cable modem market enough that shipments increased.

All in all, ADSL modem shipments for Q3 topped 1.85 million units according to the research by In-Stat. This indicates growth of 35 per cent from the last quarter, down from 46 per cent the year before.

Mike Lowe, a senior analysts at In-Stat, commented: "The slowdown in subscriber growth can be attributed to one-time events like the Verizon strike, and, despite this, the market still grew, but at a slower rate." He said he was confident that the market would pick up.

The acceptance of the DOCSIS certification as a standard in the industry has led to more aggressive marketing from manufacturers, Lowe said. ®
