• Asia-Pacific has been leading FTTx developments, and millions of customers (especially in Japan and South Korea) already have access to next-generation access, but the service ecosystem has not yet truly adapted to capabilities of the new infrastructure.
• Europe is trying to catch up, although some countries – especially in Scandinavia – already have significant deployments and are accelerating rollouts boosted in part by municipal and utility-driven projects. The rest of Europe is still struggling with finding the right regulatory model to incentivize telcos to invest while avoiding the development of new broadband monopolies.
• In North America, a single broadband provider, Verizon, represents the large majority of deployment, leaving the rest of the country devoid of next-generation access (NGA) perspectives.
