The number of subscribers has been growing steadily over the years; from about 73 million in the first quarter of 2010 to around 88 million in 2015. The United States has the second highest number of broadband subscribers worldwide, just behind China.

With more than 22 million broadband internet subscribers, Comcast is the most popular cable provider in the United States. Comcast, a market leader since early 2011, accounts for about 40 percent of all broadband internet subscriptions in the United States.
