The quantitative analysis, based on a bottom-up approach (collection then evaluation of operator and regulator data for each country), allows us to obtain a detailed view of the progress being made in each Member country and in Europe as a whole.
The report delivers a breakdown of subscribers by:
- network architecture (VDSL, FTTH/B, FTTx/Docsis3.x)
- and connection speed.
It highlights the disparities between the different countries and pinpoints the parameters that will impact rollout and take-up rates, the choice of network architecture and the pace of deployments.
The study highlights the diverse contrast between the countries according to the threshold of 100 Mbps. The situation is quite different for Superfast broadband ( 100 Mbps). The analysis shows by the way that customers willingness to subscribe to broadband network do increase with the speed. The higher is the proposed bit rate, the higher is in general the penetration.
- FTTH/B coverage
- VDSL coverage
- FTTx/D3.0 coverage
- NGA coverage by technology (including Overlap technology)
- NGA coverage by speed
- NGA subscribers
- NGA penetration rate
