Since 2010 and Google's announced fibre Gigabit network rollouts in the US, we have been seeing more and more Gigabit plans being introduced in most corners of the globe.

After a brief look at the maturity of the technologies being used to supply UFB access, the report provides a detailed inventory of Gigabit ultrafast network rollouts, with particular focus on the US market and initiatives in Asia-Pacific.

We explore how government authorities are latching on to the idea of a “Gigabit Society” and making it a priority.

The report also classifies the different marketing and pricing strategies being used by ultrafast access providers, and delivers a list of the emerging uses that require a Gigabit speed connections.

And, finally, we pinpoint the factors most likely to galvanise the development of Gigabit access.
