Francisco Fuentes Secretaire General of the FTTH-Council Europe Cisco Systems
2 FTTH Council Europe Mission: –Accelerate fibre to the home deployment in Europe by education and promotion, to enhance the quality of life of EU citizens. Council: –Consists of Manufacturers, Construction, Engineering Companies and Academia. –It provides an extensive, broad-based range of experience and knowledge. –~50 members –Non-profit organization –Founded in 2004
3 FTTH Council Europe Next Generation Broadband is the foundation (and driver) of knowledge economy, the next industrial revolution. FTTH infrastructure is critical to the long term competitiveness of Europe. Europe must act now to make it happen! FTTH Council Europe Actions –Provide a knowledge base for information gathering and analysis for the FTTH market –Communicate business and technical benefits of FTTH –Identify and highlight key market drivers and constraints to FTTH deployment in Europe –Call on policy makers in Europe to be a catalyst and to prioritize and facilitate the build out of FTTH deployment –Participate in providing education

5 Fiber based Infrastructure Competition Japan Fiber based Infrastructure Competition NTT Telephones NTT fibre Usen (music) Usen (fibre) TEPCO (CATV) TEPCO (fibre) Cable TV Source: Fujikura Multiple fibres passing the same homes! Tepco now offering 1Gb/sec to MDUs -100Mb/user will pass 8 million users by end 2004 Japan’s largest CATV provider (J-Comm) entering FTTH to compete with NTT Yahoo BB (Largest DSL competitor) to enter FTTH by leasing NTT lines KDDI planning to pass two million users with own fibre (currently lease NTT lines) USEN 12% of FTTH market, most new subscribers are former ADSL subscribers NTT Group is planning to invest a¥5 trillion (US$47 billion) in extending its FTTH (fiber to the home). The expansion would involve shifting 30 million customers to optical fiber access and next- generation network services by 2010 Source: Statistics Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication (Japan) Launched Triple Play

7 Decision to invest for a number of reasons Regulatory Environment –Regulatory Certainty Impact of Competitive Access Platforms –in countries where competitive access platforms exist the competitive dynamic has been a significant driver in the deployment of FTTH National Policy –in many countries government has played a key role in the promotion of FTTH Direct subsidy for projects Significant Gov. funded projects as a tool of Industrial policy A mix a those catalysers

11 Why Fibre? The Service-Arguments – new services – multiple services The Macroeconomic Arguments – necessary for developed economies – increase of GDP, employment,… The “Fear”-Arguments – looking at regions we are in competition with – mainly Asia and US The Infrastructure-Arguments – Fibre is future-proof – “Fibre is forever”
12 Agenda SETTING THE CONTEXT IS THIS A PROBLEM FOR EUROPE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONSPOSSIBLE SOLUTIONS CONCLUDING REMARKS
14 Increase Regulatory Certainty Distinguishing between new and old (pre-liberalisation) investments; –Limit ex-ante regulatory intervention to ‘metallic local loops ’ Sharing of passive infrastructure; –Mandate duct sharing Co-ordination of civil works; –Require utilities and construction companies to co- ordinate the digging and deploy empty ducts whenever they are digging Primary infrastructure utilities –Award franchises or subsidies to ‘third parties’ to deploy and manage open access civil infrastructure to be leased to operators
15 Provide Guidance on State Aid Decision such as Atlas: –Positive: passive infrastructure project with a rate of return of 6.9% does not distort competition to an extent contrary to the common interest. –Negative: decision is very specific. Fails to provide clear guidance Need Guidance. In particular the FTTH Council Europe recommends, when is comes to a public funded open access primary infrastructure, that –It can be an alternative to attract new investors and enhance competition –will benefit all operators does not amount to State Aid –has a much longer life cycle than the active parts of the network. Depreciating the cost over a much longer period than the depreciation period of the active parts of the network should NOT be considered a subsidy.
16 Agenda SETTING THE CONTEXT IS THIS A PROBLEM FOR EUROPE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS CONCLUDING REMARKSCONCLUDING REMARKS
17 Europe needs to act FTTH is now beginning to make a real impact across the world in terms of : –# of connections –the service and application speeds FTTH offers There is a real risk that Europe may be left behind if very high speed broadband makes a significant impact on productivity/industrial development etc. Europe and relevant undertakings should –Create a vision for real Broadband –Take necessary steps to establish clear platform competition –Remove regulatory uncertainty –Clear state-aid rules
