"FTTx subscriber take-up is growing worldwide, but the rates vary according to country and region."
Dynamics in fixed broadband markets are changing as growing numbers of subscribers switch to FTTx networks. This report examines how quickly the migration to FTTx is occurring and what the wider implications of this transition are.
This report provides:
- 5-year forecasts for subscriber connection numbers and connection rates for flavours of FTTx and cable (DOCSIS 3.0/3.1) in eight regions and in 64 individual markets
- analysis of the key trends, drivers and inhibitors of FTTx subscriber growth.
- Subscriber connection numbers
- Subscriber connections per premises passed
- Split by architecture/technology:
- FTTC/VDSL or G.fast
- FTTB/VDSL or G.fast
- FTTP (split into incumbent and alternative operator)
- cable DOCSIS3.0 or 3.1.
