FTTx services and pricing
Market report
more This report provides case studies on a selection of telcos and cablecos that are leaders in the superfast access market.
Each case study includes details on how the company is positioned on the technical front, i.e. SFB solutions employed, and from a pricing and marketing standpoint.
The report also delivers an analysis that serves to compare and contrast the main features of the SFB strategies being employed by the ISPs:
• Main technical solutions used
• Availability of bundles
• Number of different speeds on offer
• Pricing
FTTx vendors
Market report
more This report analyses the FTTx market in 2014-15 from the equipment suppliers' viewpoint.
It takes a look at the different super-fast broadband (SFB) technologies and their evolutions.
It delivers a market analysis, with particular focus on equipment suppliers' strategies around the world.
It also provides market share estimates for PON market operators (OLT and ONT).
A series of one-to-one interviews and meetings were held with many of the globe's leading FTTx equipment suppliers, including Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, ZTE, Fiber Home, Calix, Adtran and Dasan Networks, for the purposes of this report.
The Gigabit Race
Market report
more The Gigabit race is now a reality, especially in the United States where private sector players and local authorities are all getting involved in furthering the deployment of new generation infrastructure. Elsewhere in the world, Gigabit access is already in place, notably in Asia, or, in places such as Europe, poised to become a new target product for the marketplace.

This report explores regional approaches to Gigabit-speed access, and describes how the different types of players are positioned. Private and public sector stakeholders may not have adopted the same strategies, but all have a vital role to play in this search for increased network performance.

The report begins by providing some background on so-called Gigabit technologies. Although FTTH is the only one currently able to deliver a 1 Gbps connection, copper and coaxial cable systems could well undergo technological upgrades in the very near future that will allow them to rival optical fibre.

Lastly, the report takes a look at the services and usage side of things, and confirms that ultra-fast broadband is a natural progression from superfast broadband: with no specific application that today requires a 1 Gbps connection, the need for increased bandwidth is being spurred chiefly by a rise in the number of users with a simultaneous connection... although future innovations could change all that.
World FTTx market
more The bundle World FTTx market includes two deliverables:
1. A report analysing the developments in FTTx markets up to 2019.
It presents a geographical panorama of FTTx access solutions in Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America, Middle East & Africa. It also includes an overview of the major world leaders as well as a panorama of the ultrafast broadband markets: Services and tariffs, ultrafast broadband market

2. A half-yearly updated dataset covering:
- 70 countries & 250+ player sheets including their roll-out projects
- data for markets at December 2014 & forecasts up to 2019 for home passed and subscribers by architecture (FTTH/B, VDSL, FTTx/Docsis 3.0, FTTx+LAN)

DigiWorld Yearbook 2015
Market report
more Over the past 15 years, the DigiWorld Yearbook has become IDATE's flagship report, with an annual analysis of the recent developments shaping the telecoms, Internet and media markets, identifying major global trends and outlining scenarios of what lies ahead.
The mission of the Yearbook has expanded as digital technologies take on their central role in transforming various sectors including connected cars, financial and insurance services, healthcare, retail trade and the collaborative economy.
Cable Dynamics
Market report
more Cable players are under the spotlight because of the value of their networks and subscriber bases in a context of ultra-fast broadband development, accelerating consolidation operations and a reorganisation of the industry in general.
IDATE reports on this market by analysing the situations of key operators and countries, and presenting the latest technological developments and main challenges for the future of cable.

This report focuses on threats to cable operators' video revenues, the growing importance of fixed-mobile convergence in their strategies and the race to Gigabit Internet access with telecom operators.
FTTx Monetization
Market report
more The tremendous cost of new gen access networks makes monetizing them a crucial issue. Ultrafast-boradband (UFB) access providers' supply-side strategies are aimed at ensuring enough customers who will upgrade to a UFB service in order to generate substantial income.

This report addresses the following key questions:
• What are the levels of current UFB ARPUs and how could there evolve in the 5 coming years?
• How to justify possible differences from one country to another?
• What are some of the most likely development scenarios for the ultra-fast broadband market?
• What are the main criteria to take into consideration?

IDATE also provides UFB market estimates for 2013 and up to 2018.
National Broadband Plans
Market report
more This report focuses on the services offered by telecommunications and cable operators through their FTTx infrastructures.
It reviews the levels of speeds offered, the content of offers and price ranges, and highlights the differences between major world regions.
15 ultra-fast broadband players, representing all regions were considered in order to carry out this analysis.
VDSL2 - G.Fast - FTTdp
Market report
more Vectoring and bonding are starting to be deployed in certain countries, even if the technical and regulatory constraints would seem to point to only small-scale rollouts. G.Fast is the next generation standard being examined today. This insight provides readers with an update on the latest technological developments in VDSL2.

This insight is part of the FTTx watch which covers:
• Half-yearly updated datasets
• Half-yearly updated status reports
• Bimonthly market insights
• Direct access to lead FTTx analysts
Market report
more Achieving the goals that the European Commission has set out for ultra-fast broadband in its Digital Agenda will require sizeable investments, which will vary depending on each country’s technological choices. At the same time, ultra-fast broadband will generate additional revenue that will depend on operators’ product line and sales strategies.
FTTH/B European panorama
Market report
more This insight provides a complete summary of the status of FTTH/B rollouts in the EU-39 region with a characterisation of each project by: Organisation initiating the project, Key parameters and figures (homes and buildings passed), Technical parameters, financing and business model.
It also presents a focus on FTTx in the UK.

This Insight is part of our ongoing monitoring FTTx Watch.
NGA deployment costs
more The Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) 2020 calls for ubiquitous coverage of households in all EU Member States with a minimum broadband access of 30 Mbps, and subscriptions to 100 Mbps access for half of them. This report provides its readers with an inventory of NGA network coverage for each EU Member State as well as cost scenarios – with a breakdown by technology and by population density (urban, peri-urban, rural) – to reach the DAE targets.
Ultrafast Broadband Survey
Market report
more Drawing on the results of an exclusive international survey, and an analysis of multimedia equipment and internet usage levels, this report allows readers to deepen their understanding of the current mechanisms, drivers and obstacles that are shaping the rate at which residential users are switching to ultrafast broadband.
