Spain is at present gaining momentum in FTTH deployments. Further to the announcements of the national operators which have been released lately, local operators are also upgrading their infrastructures towards FTTH.
I am at present developing several FTTH projects with small operators and they are also very active, in order to have a interesting offer to compete against national operators. They see that unless they invest and offer high speed services, their future will turn very dark.
The key aspects of these operators, however, are totally different from the big guys. Their strengths are their proximity with the customer and a service that is totally adapted to their local subscribers. They offer very flexible solutions and also customize their offer to fulfill specific requirements of their users.
I always recommend to deploy symmetric services so their offer is different from the asymmetric offers from the national operators.
So, all the players in the telecom arena, both national and local, are investing to upgrade their infrastructures to offer ultra high speed services. This is good news, because it means that the market is evolving towards the future, with undoubtedly is FTTH.
Is this the same in your country?
