Fibre Networks Eat Three Times More Traffic Than ADSL

Posted: 09th Jul, 2008 By: MarkJ
The latest FTTH Council Europe research has revealed that users of FTTH (Fibre To The Home) networks consume three times more traffic than those on traditional ADSL broadband services. This is hardly surprising given that ADSL2+'s theoretical maximum speed is 24Mbps, while FTTH can deliver up to 100Mbps.

In addition, the bulk of initial FTTH adopting countries, such as those in the Asia Pacific region, have done so through public funding and are able to offer considerably more flexible download allowances:

Joeri Van Bogaert, president of the FTTH Council Europe, told ZDNet: "We expect this to increase significantly as fibre adoption continues to increase across Europe and further services are developed with fibre in mind. When customers have faster connections, they use them more."

The study also revealed that European broadband speeds are rising by an average of 50% per year, although this probably refers to the ADVERTISED speeds and not real-world performance.
