Chart shows who dominates 1 Gbps FTTP industry

Aug 28th, 2013

A chart and investigative article from FierceTelecom examines the progress that service providers have made in rolling out 1 Gbps services via FTTP networks in specific U.S. cities.

The reporting analyzes how three service provider segments -- Google, municipalities, and ILECs -- are now either in the process of delivering, or have announced their intentions to deliver, a 1 Gbps FTTP service.
