Looking back it is hard to think of another telecom technology that has seen more debate, more vacillation, and less real action than FTTH. But now I think we can safely assume that we have a ‘green light’ and deployment is not an option. The debate is now; ‘not if or when’, but how? For those looking for the one true FTTH solution I say there is no silver bullet – more a menu of options that each country/company will have to choose from to meet local needs.
