According to a report, currently, India is home to 18 million broadband connections that saw as high as 18 GB data per day consumed during a lockdown. Even prior to the COVID 19 pandemic, demand for high-speed broadband was on the rise due to growing digital consumption. FTTH/ Fiber optic gained enormous growth because of its capability of transmitting data at the speed of light. Especially, during the pandemic, FTTH unlocked a slew of opportunities for remote workers and emerged into the spotlight. The pressure for better connectivity is one of the main reasons users were looking at fiber-to-the-home broadband connections as a potential solution during crisis.
Here’s the list of Key drivers for FTTH demand:
- The speed, bandwidth, reliability and low-latency capabilities of fiber internet provide the best possible access to a business’s hosted services and cloud-based applications
- Emerging technologies like AI, Cloud, IoT is making FTTH infrastructure more important than ever, and deployment of fiber-optic cabling systems is quick, efficient and future-ready
- Fiber is more secure, reliable, and durable because fiber cables transmit information through electrical pulses, and they are resistant to electrical noise, interference, and voltage surges
