The 2021 FTTH report shows the expectation for record North American FTTH growth of over $60 billion over the next five years, even without the expected infrastructure bill in Congress. 

The report is an extremely detailed review, analysis, and forecast of fiber deployments, as well as consumer, business, and municipal desires for advanced broadband applications and services. The report also has a new section on fiber to the 5G “small cell”.  

This report will help illuminate the underlying trends driving this FTTH, 5G and Smart City activity. Data is presented graphically and numerically, and includes history from 2001-2020, plus a 5-year (2021-2025) forecast, with detailed breakouts.  The report also includes an important new section on estimating take-rates in specific communities.

The report is based on extensive research and quantitative analysis involving interviews with hundreds of providers, vendors, and industry experts, as well as thousands of consumers.
