EU-wide FTTH coverage will cost EUR 156 bln - FTTH Council

Wednesday 25 January 2017 | 11:03 CET | News
The FTTH Council Europe said that deploying FTTH throughout the EU (100% homes passed, 50% connected) will cost EUR 156 billion, though the reuse of existing infrastructure could bring the figure lower. The model accounts for the already existing fibre coverage and connections (30% homes passed, 10% connected). The council developed the model as input to the ongoing legislative debate on the proposal for a European Electronic Communications Code.
