ORLANDO, FL - More than 7.6 million North American homes now receive their Internet, video and/or voice services over end-to-end fiber networks, according to a report commissioned by the Fiber-to-the-Home Council.

The figure, reported by market analysis firm RVA LLC, showed an increase of 1.15 million FTTH households over the past year, for an annual gain of 18 percent.

The RVA report also showed that FTTH service is now available to 22 million homes on the continent, a gain of about 10 percent in FTTH “homes passed” over the past year. In a presentation at the 2011 FTTH Conference & Expo, RVA president Mike Render noted that Canada, Mexico and Caribbean countries have begun to show significant FTTH deployment activity in 2011, with 4 percent of total new connections in Canada and 5 percent in Mexico and the Caribbean.

“While fiber-to-the-home deployment in Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean had barely scratched the surface in previous years, it appears that the FTTH providers in those countries are now out of the starting gate, and I expect see continued growth in their fiber activity going forward,” Render said.
