In 2019: More than a third of households in Eastern Europe have FTTH/B service

Strategic Highlights
Published: 2020-03-17

Around 36% of the total households in Eastern Europe are already subscribed to either fibre to the home/building (FTTH/B) service based on InfoCom’s 4Q19 fixed broadband monitoring(+2.4 p.p. YoY) as operators remained active with their infrastructure upgrades and expansion during the period. This factor was mostly observed in Croatia, with fibre to the premises (FTTP) subscriptions surging by 40% YoY. Incumbent operator T-Hrvatski Telekom already covered 30% of the Croatian households with fibre networks as it doubled its capital outlay in 2019. Customer complaints also reportedly declined by 22% following its recent broadband network upgrades. A similar trend was observed in Poland, Serbia, and Slovakia where telcos also increasingly prioritised fibre networks to improve competitiveness – although FTTP adoption in these markets remains to be relatively low as compared with xDSL and cable modem (i.e. between 8% - 23% FTTP household adoption rate) – click here to find out more information about this report.
