FTTH: Another One Million Homes Passed

Two leading telecommunications industry organizations, the Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), today announced new estimates showing FTTH deployments now passing over 3.6 million U.S. homes, an increase of almost 1 million homes in four months.

The new figures, released prior to the FTTH Council�s quarterly meeting in Washington, DC next week, show the most rapid growth of FTTH deployment to date, with more than 230,000 additional homes passed every month. The figures also show acceleration among homes connected by FTTH, which normally lags homes passed by several months. Over the last four months, the estimate shows, homes connected with FTTH have increasedby 70 percent - to 548,000 subscribers from 322,000.

Both organizationshave urged policymakers to reduce barriers to next-generation broadband deployment, such as streamlining cable television franchising processes and allowing municipalities to build broadband networks.
