FTTH situation in Europe
see also report
At end 2007 the “magic” barrier of 1 million FTTH/B subscribers has been passed in Europe and we reached nearly 5 million Homes Passed. Nevertheless FTTH is still concentrated to only a few countries as Europe remains far behind leaders such as Japan and the US.
As in previous years, IDATE has been commissioned by the FTTH Council Europe to give an overview of the FTTH deployments in Europe at end 2007. To date, IDATE has identified 201 FTTH/B projects in Europe of which 88 are new initiatives since June 2005.
