National Broadband Plan
The FTTH Council submitted a wealth of information to the Federal Communications Commission during its consideration of a National Broadband Plan. These include two studies by the telecommunications strategy consultant CSMG -- one outlining the projected cost of wiring up the country with FTTH, and the other exploring the range of next-generation digital services and applications that will likely come about as a result of the proliferation of all-fiber networks in the U.S.
In an ex parte presentation in the National Broadband Plan (“NBP”) inquiry filed on November 4, 2009, the Fiber-to-the-Home (“FTTH”) Council set forth a vision to accelerate access to broadband service to all Americans and a series of proposals for the Commission to adopt. In response, Commission staff working on the NBP asked the Council to elaborate on select aspects of this filing. An accompanying presentation can be found by clicking here.
