  • 8.2m homes passed (o/w 99% in US for a 16% percent penetration).
  • 17.0m homes marketed.
  • 5.8m homes connected (o/w RBOCS 4.3m, o/w Verizon majority, >750 providers rest; penetration 5% in US).
  • Take rate 34.1% (Verizon 29.5%, non-Verizon 52%).
  • Adoption faster (at peak 250%) than copper (peak 76%) or coaxial (peak 125%).
  • 65.7% of ILECs not involved in FTTH yet are 'very likely' to do so in future.
