Current Growth is Being Led by Exciting New Overbuilding Activity from Providers Such as AT&T, CenturyLink, Google, and Hundreds of Other Providers

This report is an extremely detailed review, analysis, and forecast of FTTH deployments and consumer desires for advanced broadband applications and services. Well respected analysis helps illuminate the underlying trends driving FTTH activity. Data is presented graphically and numerically, and includes history from 2001-2016, plus a 5-year (2017-2021) forecast, with detailed breakouts.

North American FTTH activity is predicted to grow to record levels by 2021. Current growth is being led by exciting new overbuilding activity from providers such as AT&T, CenturyLink, Google, and hundreds of other providers; both traditional and non traditional.

At the end of 2016, approximately 27% of all the homes in North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Caribbean) have been passed by FTTH with 11% of those currently connected.

In the U.S., approximately 26% of all homes have been passed with FTTH and are being marketed to consumers while 12% have been connected. In the US the total investment to date in FTTH is valued at about $44 billion, and for all of North America about $60 billion.

While these are big numbers, in reality they represent only a beginning. A total of 88% of North American homes are yet to be connected with FTTH, and the broader industry being built around advanced broadband consumers is still in its infancy.

Based on extensive research and quantitative analysis involving interviews with hundreds of providers, vendors, and industry experts, as well as thousands of consumers, the report provides critical information valuable to equipment vendors, service providers, investors, government agencies, non-profits, software developers, and video programming providers for developing successful strategies to address future North American FTTH deployment and consumer usage trends.
