The latest finding from Jupiter Research shows that the Europeans are still sceptical about broadband and a "broadband revolution" in the region seems a far cry. The majority of existing Internet users are disinterested in upgrading to broadband and rest of them do not want it at all.

The results of Jupiter Research's latest pan-European consumer survey reveals that narrowband access is still dominating the market and broadband's penetration seems a tough job for some time to come.

When asked how likely existing narrowband Internet users would upgrade to a broadband connection, notably, 25 per cent of European Internet users dismissed the idea of broadband connection and 29 per cent said they were unlikely to get one. These results signify the difficult job that European ISPs will have in convincing consumers to opt for broadband Internet access.
