Archived report. This report was archived and has not been updated since. Countries with effective and strong regulatory policies are forging ahead with a lively fibre footprint and the financial crisis is providing further emphasis on FttH. This report examines how, when regulators get the issue between their teeth and act, the fibre sector moves ahead because operators are no longer put off by regulatory uncertainty. By promoting effective fibre regimes, regulators are in turn supported by governments, conscious of the socio-economic benefits of fast broadband networks, and the consideration that such networks are vital to national infrastructure. In this report we also include a detailed case study of developments in Europe as they are important on a global scale. Europe’s regulatory policies aim to encourage fibre infrastructure investment while promoting competition.

Paul has been a relentless advocate and tireless activist for making the world a more connected place.
His passion for broadband and his firm belief in its transformational impact on societies across the globe is unrivalled.
I am honoured to call Paul a friend and I trust he will keep up the fight for better broadband and better access to broadband for all people, wherever they live and whatever their background, into the future.
