30 countries pass one percent FTTB mark, but not Australia

By

The FTTH Council has published an updated ranking of global fibre to the home or fibre to the building deployments showing that 30 countries can now boast fibre to at least one percent of premises. Australia still does not make the grade.

The newest entrants are Malaysia, Canada and Romania with, respectively, 3.42, 1.24 and just over one percent of premises served by fibre.

At the other end of the scale, South Korea continues to lead with 58 percent penetration. The United Arab Emirates has moved into second place with 56 percent penetration, followed by Hong Kong (46 percent) and Japan (43 percent).

Heather Burnett Gold, president of the FTTH Council North America, said: "It is clear that Canada is now firmly on the path to expanded FTTH deployment, with several network operators in the country now upgrading to all-fibre, and we now expect that fibre to the home market growth in Canada may exceed that of the US over the next several years.

"Meanwhile, FTTH is beginning to take off in Latin America and the Caribbean, with nearly a dozen network operators in those countries beginning their deployments. It is now clear that across the Americas, FTTH is becoming the preferred technology for wireline access networks that are looking to stay competitive."

Details of the top 30 countries' FTTH/B penetration can be found here.
