Demand for FTTx has gradually picked up in 2011, and we expect continued improvement.
2012 looks like it will be a year when operators will start to roll out accelerated DSL technologies in significant volumes. This has the potential to slow the build-out of FTTH, but there are some early signs that take-up of next-generation fixed access is increasing, which may encourage operators to be bolder.
This Report outlines current supply and demand trends, key operator developments, the latest cost assumptions and a market outlook, based on a fully reviewed update of our previous FTTx forecasts. It includes case studies on five European incumbents: A1 Telekom Austria, Telekom Deutschland, Telecom Italia, France Telecom (Orange) and BT.
