U.S. Ethernet Customer Installations by Port Speed Segment

Although small now, the U.S. market demand for higher speed Ethernet services is strengthening.  A leading indicator is that 100 Mbps will replace 10 Mbps as the largest Ethernet port speed segment in 2013.  The Ultra-high speed segment (1 Gbps and 10+ Gbps), which is the smallest overall based on port installations, has the highest growth rate.
