Examples: • Countries with strong utility involvement: e.g Sweden, Denmark, Finland • Countries with strong competition on last mile: e.g. The Netherlands, France • Countries with strong government involvement: e.g. Portugal, Slovenia • Countries with strong incumbent and competition mainly on unbundling basis: e.g. Germany, UK • Countries with main focus on mobile market: e.g. Austria• There are no real „pan-European“ players. One operators often acts very different in different countries, e.g. Deutsche Telekom or France Telecom

FTTH in Eastern Europe• High number of former Easter European countries in European ranking: • Baltic states • Slovenia • Slovakia • Bulgaria • Rumania • Czech Republic• Three main reasons: • Need for building or rebuilding communication infrastructure (e.g. Lithuania) • Strong involvement of Western European Operators (e.g. Slovakia) • Dynamic market with many new players (e.g. Bulgaria)

  • 15. Asking the wrong questions• Would you ask: “Will we ever need an oven that heats up to 250 Degree Celsius?”• Would you ask: „Will we ever need 18 litres/minute in the shower?“• Would you ask: „Will we ever need 230 Volts in the power socket?“• But you ask: „Will we ever need 100 Mbit/s?“
  • 16. Let’s ask differentlyWould you like to download an HD movie in less than 30 minutes and therefore startwatching it immediately?Would you like to do an online-backup of your 60 Gbyte harddrive in less than 90 minutes?Would you like to do an HD video-chat with your friends while downloading files in thebackground?Would you like to watch a HD video on demand while you record another HD video at thesame time?Would you like to play your online-games at the speed of light?Would you like to work from home and access the company file server as fast as if you sitin your office?
