Imagine, Huawei try to show FWA is a real alternative to FTTH

Monday 21 August 2017 | 14:09 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Is the tide turning for wireless as an alternative to fixed lines? A major project for Huawei in Ireland suggests the time has come. The competition between fixed and mobile is intense in Ireland, as not one but two players are rolling out FTTH, and the cable network is also expanding. The question remains whether FWA (fixed-wireless access) is a viable replacement for the fixed line on a massive scale. Irish operator Imagine Communications' project will be one to watch. Otherwise the mobile market may be waiting for 6G before FWA is a real alternative to FTTH.
