A word from our expert

Wireline services practice Leader, IDATE DigiWorld

“For telcos and cablecos, the ultimate goal is to pull fibre as close to user premises as possible.
But there are still a great many unanswered questions over business models, including: what rate of deployment and what monetisation strategy? How much financial support can the public sector provide?
Can authorities’ “Gigabit Society” objective generate value-creation opportunities that will guarantee a high enough return on investment?
Will FTTH as a whole be affected by alternative technologies like G.Fast or 5G WTTx? What role will FTTH play in emerging regions, and in Africa in particular?”
