Brussels, 23 February 2023 – Today, the FTTH Council Europe revealed a new study on the FTTH/B drivers and hurdles in Europe, prepared by Plum Consulting.
The new study addresses a key challenge for all decision-makers and the industry: the discrepancy between fibre rollouts and take-up rates. While the FTTH/B rollout coverage in Europe now amounts to 57% and is progressing steadily, the take-up rate is yet to reach the 50% mark, with considerable differences at country level. In practice, this means that only 27% of the population is effectively connected to a full fibre network. The study analyses the FTTH Council Europe data about the FTTH/B deployment and adoption, looks at the most prominent drivers and hurdles in Europe, and features an in-depth analysis of 8 European countries: Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. The selected countries are either overperforming compared to EU27+UK average or underperforming. The study provides a set of recommendations based on the key take-up drivers and hurdles as well as the most effective measures identified in the selected countries.
 “Fibre to the Home” (FTTH) is defined as an access network architecture in which the connection to the subscriber’s Premises is Optical Fiber. The fibre optic communications path is terminated on or inside the Premises for the purpose of carrying communication services to a single subscriber. “Fibre to the Building” (FTTB) is defined as an access network architecture in which the fibre optic communications path is terminated within the building for the purpose of carrying communication services for a single building with potentially multiple subscribers.
