Explorative case studies on FTTH infrastructure roll-out projects
Today, almost 85% of worldwide FTTH/B subscribers are located in Asia. Around the world, several local fiber broadband initiatives and projects were launched in the past few years. Fiberevolution.com lists more than 450 planned projects, and a project overview is provided in Appendix 10. The majority of these fiber broadband projects – either already deployed or in development – are located in large, populationdense cities or small municipalities and villages. As we focused on rural fiber deployment projects, a major analysis task was the identification and data collection of fiber roll-out projects in rural areas. How data collection and case selection was pursued is explained in Chapter 5. In order to make the analysis more transparent and to display major analysis outcomes, selected FTTH projects will be presented as detailed case studies. These cases will be analyzed according to the evaluation method presented in Chapter 5.3. Information from the cases will be aggregated and evaluated in the next chapter.
