North American FTTH Connections Reach 3 Million

The Fiber-to-the-Home Council reported that 11.8 million homes in North America are now passed by fiber-optic cables and 10 million can now be connected, while nearly 3 million already have service on fiber all the way to the home. In total, about 10 percent of all North American homes are passed by fiber cables, with FTTH growth running at 97 percent annually.

Verizon, the council said, leads the pace with more than 70 percent of the current total fiber connections. Cable operators have installed less than one percent of the total all-fiber services.
