“FTTH is often said to be ‘future-proof’, but the future appears to have veered off in a different direction – one in which wireless devices and services capture new consumer spend while take-up of NGA-based services is troublingly low.”

The speed and nature of next-generation access (NGA) roll-out continues to be a dilemma for many fixed-line operators in Europe and North America. They face competitive threats from cable and increasingly from wireless operators, but the cost of full fibre access remains worryingly high and higher-speed copper alternatives, though less expensive, have an uncertain shelf life. Major operators are drawing up and amending long-term investment plans regularly, with the result that they vary considerably in different markets.

This report highlights the major drivers for and inhibitors to the two main types of FTTx roll-out by telcos: VDSL and FTTH. It provides forecasts for 33 individual countries in 4 global regions with mature telecoms economies (Central and Eastern Europe, Developed Asia–Pacific, North America and Western Europe). The forecasts cover VDSL and FTTH network roll-out, subscriber take-up and capex from the present through to the end of 2015. They are based in part on operators’ own projections. The report highlights the discrepancies between the levels of investment in different markets.

FTTx roll-out and capex in developed economies: forecasts 2010–2015 answers your key questions:

How far will FTTH roll-out extend and what will it cost?
What will be the major drivers of cost erosion?
What are current take-up rates like and how will these develop in relation to homes passed?
How do the elements in the cost-to-pass and the cost-to-connect for VDSL and FTTH stack up?
Is investment in FTTH too risky in an increasingly wireless world?
