Twelve percent of all EU-7 consumers have a home network, according to a Forrester Research report. This level represents growth of about 33 percent in the past year, and, for the first time, wireless technologies are driving this growth.

Forrester says manufacturers and service providers need to evolve their offering to sustain the interest of technical consumers, attract new users and create a more supportive ecosystem.
