Vision & Mission

Full fibre for a
digital and sustainable

The FTTH Council Europe is an industry association with a mission to advance ubiquitous full fibre-based connectivity to the whole of Europe.


Our vision is that fibre connectivity will transform and enhance the way we live, do business and interact, connecting everyone and everything, everywhere.


Fibre is the future-proof, climate-friendly infrastructure that enables an unparalleled fixed and wireless experience as well as new innovative digital technologies and services, empowering a leading Digital Society in Europe. This is a crucial prerequisite for safeguarding Europe’s global competitiveness while playing a leading global role in sustainability.


Listen to the words of our President Eric Festraets and see how we collaborate with our Members in creating a brighter future through Fibre to the Home.
