SINGAPORE — One hundred million people in the Asia-Pacific region are now subscribed to Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) services according to new research from analyst firm Ovum. The milestone, was announced by the FTTH Council Asia-Pacific, which promotes and encourages the adoption of fiber technologies.

Work by the council, including the sharing of accurate and unbiased information about regulatory policies, standards and best practice, is credited as contributing to the successful take up of FTTH services in the region.

Investment in Future-proofed Infrastructure Pay Off

“Asia-Pacific is leading the world in FTTH subscribers and this is a major milestone which represents a tremendous financial investment and a strong understanding of the future of networking infrastructure,” said Julie Kunstler, principal analyst at Ovum. “It reflects the growth of content and the continuous demand for content.

“This region also reflects a wide range of deployment models – from strong government goals to innovative wholesale-retail models to crossing the digital divide with support for e-health and e-education in rural regions. In addition this major milestone was achieved through innovative solutions from fiber cabling suppliers along with component and equipment vendors.”

FTTH Council Asia-Pacific has been working to boost the number of FTTH subscribers and its latest achievement has come ahead of its ten-year anniversary next year. As well as sharing relevant information in order to educate and promote, the council also works directly with network operators to ensure they have the confidence and resources to deploy FTTH. A number of seminars and workshops with guest speakers are also organized by the council throughout the year.

“This achievement is the result of hard work carried out by all council parties, said FTTH Council Asia-Pacific President Dr. Bernard Lee, "especially the board of directors who have gone beyond the call of duty in order to promote FTTH and the great benefits it can bring. “When network operators in Asia-Pacific deploy FTTH they know that they will always have the FTTH Council standing by and we are extremely proud to have played a part in reaching such a significant milestone.”
