U.S. Fiber Subscribers to reach 18 million by 2011

The number of U.S. households subscribing to FTTx (fiber connections) will increase from three million in 2007 to 18 million by the end of 2011, according to a new report from Parks Associates.

"FTTx and BPL: Analysis and Outlook" analyzes the market trends and significant events that will impact FTTx and BPL deployments over the next five years. It also addresses the consumer and competitive pressures that will influence these methods, the economics associated with the deployment of these technologies, and the opportunities FTTx and BPL provides for vendors and service providers.

"While fiber is a small percentage of total U.S. broadband household subscriptions today, it will achieve a faster growth rate than what DSL and cable did after their inception," said Chris Roden, research analyst at Parks Associates.
