Interesting numbers on the European cable space

I found a couple of interesting data points on the European cable TV and broadband markets today:
  • Cable Europe reports that digital cable subscribers in Europe grew 18% to 16.3 million in the first half of 2008. Germany leads the way with digital cable subscribers, at 3.4 million subscribers.
  • Numericable, the French cable operator that emerged in 2007 as the combination of assets from France Telecom and TDF and Noos (formerly UPC France), now has more than 100,000 subscribers to a 100 Mbps FTTH service that is comparable to what Verizon is doing here with FiOS. In comparison, France's heavyweight telecom operator - France Telecom - only has 14,000 subscribers to its FTTH broadband service.
