Though the two biggest fiber projects, Verizon’s FiOS and AT&T’s U-verse, are about done, the focus remains on fiber. The news is that there indeed are plenty of projects around the world, from small carriers to BT (British Telecom) and other giants.
Here is a rundown of some of the recent activity. The fiber is being used for different things: to reach subscriber homes and businesses and in networking scenarios that stop short of those endpoints. Networkers use fiber-to-node, fiber-to-the-home, fiber-to-the-premises (FTTN, FTTH and FTTP). They may as well call it FTTR – fiber-to-the-revenue.
The bottom line is that fiber is the predominant material for all wired builds, and is getting more dominant as time marches on. This is true for small, medium and large carriers and businesses.
