Not appearing to be constrained by the same desire to protect legacy networks that is found in other parts of the world, a number of Asian markets are already pushing strongly into fibre networks in various forms.

“2007 North Asian - Telecoms Statistics and Market Overview” reports that with Japan out in front yet again, FttH has quickly emerged as a serious broadband platform in that country. The technology in Japan has jumped from 1.5 million FttH subscribers in mid-2004 to an estimated 10 million by September 2007.

In fact, FttH subscribers in Japan comprise over 32% of the country’s total broadband subscriber base. The rapid expansion into fibre saw the number of Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services peak in early 2006 and the DSL numbers have since moved into decline. This is significant, as Japan’s initial broadband development was built on the back of huge push into DSL.

According to authors of the report, apart from Japan, it comes as no surprise that the movement towards fibre in Asia has been occurring in the more developed markets. However, they say the adoption rate varies considerably from market to market. In South Korea, for example, the situation is complicated by the use of both fibre and fibre-hybrid infrastructure to deliver broadband services.

The report shows that whilst number of FttH subscribers is relatively small in South Korea, there has been strong growth in Fibre to the Curb (FttC) and Fibre to the Node (FttN) services, which in turn support other platforms to deliver service to the premises. Other Asian markets, like Singapore and Taiwan, are busy with pilot FttH networks and early commercial activity.

According to the study, Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom has an ambitious plan to cover the island with fibre and was aiming for 2.5 million FttH subscribers by 2011. In fact, to give an indication of the huge investment involved in fibre roll-outs, Chunghwa has plans to spend NT$60 billion (US$1.83 billion) over the next five years for a Fibre to the Building (FttB) network that has initially been designed to connect about 25% of Taiwan’s 7.4 million residences and offices.

he report also shows that China has also been making positive statements about FttH roll-outs. The development of FttH was to be found in 11th priority position in China’s five-year plan published in 2005. With the 2008 Beijing Olympics fast approaching, China Netcom said it was making extensive use of fibre as its broadband platform of choice in preparation. In the meantime, China Telecom has announced plans to have FttH established nationwide by 2010.
