Market Insights

Omdia expects fibre to account for 77% of the world’s 1.8 billion fixed broadband subscriptions in 2028.

In the meantime, the fixed broadband industry has significant work to do towards unravelling the complexities of upgrade strategies if it is to achieve high-performance fibre rollouts, and ultimately, monetisation.

At Network X 2024 we will be welcoming the most successful fibre providers to share their firsthand insights into the best strategies for progress in this market. We will be giving a spotlight to tier 1 telcos as well as the most innovative and agile AltNet players.

Join tier 1s as they deliver case studies on effective selection of the right PON upgrade strategy as a fixed operator – including how to reuse your PON network with new services such as 5G xHaul.  

We’ll also have leading AltNets debating which emerging technologies will deliver value and drive efficiencies for FTTH rollouts. 

Hear global telecoms experts speak on the latest innovations, monetisation strategies and case studies impacting the Fibre market over the course of three days. Furthermore, the event will address current growth drivers for the Fibre market – including next-gen PON upgrade paths, FTTH rollouts, the rise of AltNets and shifting market dynamics.
