FTTH Community Guide

I should be promoting my own book but this new FTTH Community Guide may be of more interest to readers of this blog!

Although it is deeply Americanised, much of what is covered in this guide bears relevance to those looking to develop community FTTH in Europe. Obviously, the lack of a co-operative or mutual model within the case studies is a shame; however, each municipality seems to be seeing a ROI which undoubtedly has a positive effect on the communities' coffers.

ECFibernet is also worth keeping an eye on to see how the sustainability and profitability to rural areas pans out. Although the legal issues may be different in the US, the economics for rural areas in pretty much any area of the EU are similar.

Definitely a report worth perusing....

FTTH involves more than just future-proof technology. It also provides developers and system operators with the freedom to create a “FTTH amenity,” and to make technology a powerful part of the vision of any proposed community. As a cost-effective IP-based video distribution platform, MFH3 is delivering on the promise offered by FTTH and next-generation IP networks.
