More speed in fiber optic deployments in Europe for the next coming years
The new elected board of FTTH Europe Council launched on 18th of May, 2018 an “Wake-up call for Europe to speed up on full fibre: demand is on the rise, investments need to catch-up” in Public Release.
It is nice to see the 3 pillars for the fiber optic deployments within the next coming years in this call:
- new project on fiber for 5G. This requires a paradigm shift breaking down the traditional silos of “fixed” and “mobile” networks and presents an enormous opportunity to invest more efficiently connecting everyone, everything everywhere.
- new fibre investment models like for example wholesale-only and provide a platform for open discussion
- focus on how to treat legacy copper so that Europe can speed up moving forward to a fibre future.
