Since 2004, broadband connections across Europe have grown by almost 95%, from 44 million households in 2005 to over 85 million. In fact, broadband Internet connections in Europe today outstrip those in the US, representing 83% of all Internet connections, compared to 70% in America. The explosion in broadband uptake combined with the relentless pace of technological innovation is driving a major change in consumer behaviour and is transforming our traditional media landscape. In this report, Microsoft analyses the differences in broadband penetration levels across Europe, examines the causes fuelling the growth of Internet adoption, assesses the impact of consumers’ evolving online behavior, and predicts the online trends of the future.

The bulk of these mobile video viewers will be casual in their usage, watching short and long-form content for free. Video capable handsets will grow from just 31% of the installed base in 2008 to 76% of the installed base in 2013. Mobile browsing is expected to grow from 19% adoption in 2008 to 30% in 2013. http://www.flickr.com/photos/98964418@N00/1045492723/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/12817132@N07/2698887371/ A Window into your Digital Future
  • 13. A Window to the Future Microsoft predicts 5 trends for the future 1. The 3 screens We will see a concerted shift to seamless PC, TV and mobile experiences 2. The Rise of Connected Entertainment Seamless entertainment experiences will bridge the gap between online and offline: This will end the need to watch TV in real-time as we shift to seamless PC and TV experiences. Long form video content and IPTV will become the norm on a TV that is really, a PC. Consumers will download movies and TV shows and only access ‘live’ TV for big news and sports events. http://www.flickr.com/photos/22861830@N00/2553668324/ A Window into your Digital Future
  • 14. 3. The whole web becomes social Social connectivity will become commercial and advertising will become increasingly personal: Online commerce will represent a larger share of overall consumer spending. User generated content (UGC) online shopping experiences will provide users with a relevant online experience. And businesses will be able to target consumers with location relevant offers and services in real time 4. The 3D Internet: The 3D Internet will become a reality, with consumers able to virtually experience a holiday resort before they book, students will be able to attend virtual lectures and shoppers will be able to see how an armchair would look in their living room before they buy it. 5. The rise of Smartphones Smartphones will stop being a category of their own, and become mainstream, affordable choices. People will increasingly use mobiles as a natural first port of call for web browsing, social networking, photo sharing, music, videos and other dimensions of their digital lives. Mobile browsing is expected to grow from 19% adoption in 2008 to 30% in 2013. A Window into your Digital Future
