Asia Moving Full Speed Ahead on Fiber to Home and Neighborhoods


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., January 10, 2006 - Five major countries in Asia comprise the fastest developing regional broadband market including the adoption of advanced FTTX in the residential broadband market: both Fiber to the Premise/Home (FTTP/FTTH) and Fiber to the Neighborhood/Curb/Building (FTTN/FTTC/FTTB), reports In-Stat ( Asia as a whole, and in particular the growing China and Australian markets, provide huge growth potential for equipment and service players to claim a slice of the growing FTTX pie, the high-tech market research firm says.

“Foreign investors may not need to build up networks or provide services on their own,” says Victor Liu, In-Stat analyst. “Instead, content developers and value-added services providers may have better revenue prospects if they work closely with broadband service providers who lead the adoption of FTTX in those markets.”

A recent report by In-Stat found the following:

* In China, FTTC/N+ LAN is proving to be a cost-effective way to introduce broadband to homes.
* Japan has built up high-speed network infrastructures extending fiber all the way to the home to deliver a wide array of voice, data and multimedia applications including increasingly popular VoIP service.
* In South Korea, service providers have found that online gaming, Video-On-Demand, and e-commerce are moneymaking applications that are well suited to the increased bandwidth of FTTX.

The report, Asia/Pacific Embraces Residential FTTx Services (#IN0502394ANT), covers the Fiber to the Premise/Home (FTTP/FTTH) and Fiber to the Neighborhood/Curb/Building (FTTN/FTTC/FTTB) markets in the five Asian nations that have the most activity: Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea. It includes profiles of broadband providers and their FTTX strategies, and forecasts of FTTX subscribers and service revenue for each country and the region as a whole.
