External financing, wholesale and networking sharing strengthen FTTH business case

Monday 28 March 2016 | 12:36 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
The incumbents, both the former PTTs and cable operators, are upgrading their broadband networks steadily, but few have chosen FTTH, as the business case is still in question. The few exceptions are largely local projects, for example Swiss operator UPC Cablecom is expanding its network to new locations by building fibre to the building. Nevertheless we see more new parties entering the broadband market around the world, and they nearly all choose to use FTTH. There are a wide range of strategies and business models behind the technology choice.
