A word from our expert

“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?”
