North American FTTH: The Latest Research

Fiber Growth Remains Strong: Now Passing 30 Million Homes in the U.S.

It’s an exciting time for fiber broadband in North America. A new report from the Fiber to the Home Council Americas shows that fiber deployment has seen strong annual growth, and smaller providers are playing a big role.

Key Stats Include:

  • North America has experienced record growth in fiber to homes for the last 3 years with 2016 year over year growth totaling 16%. In fact, 2016 saw 4.2 million homes passed, roughly tying with the previous record set in 2008.

It’s no easy task to deploy fiber in the North America — several billion miles of network are required to supply fiber-optic capability to an individual U.S. home — but thousands of providers are united in bringing all fiber networks to the U.S.

Smaller providers are playing a large role in fiber’s growth.
