Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated since. During the mid 2000s, the technological resilience of the copper-based network in the wake of broadband was a setback for Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH) deployment. However, these networks are showing that there is an enormous appetite for broadband and these developments are leading to a much clearer indication of the demand for FttH, and the business models which need to be developed for it. Japan is leading the world, the USA and Korea are rapidly rolling out, and developments are taking place in Sweden, the Netherlands and Iceland. Other opportunities exist for developers, cities and states/provinces, who see FttH as an important infrastructure development and, as such, are prepared to take the lead in FttH roll-outs. This report provides analysis of the current market, including a look at the various business drivers, future opportunities, current business models and the costs of deployment. Further analysis of the overall issues in relation to FttH and the various deployments taking place around the world, is available from separate reports.
