Brussels, 21 June 2018 – Today the FTTH Council Europe organised an event on the convergence between fibre and 5G hosted by with MEP Michal Boni in the European Parliament. As wireless networks increasingly depend on fibre connectivity and the traditional “fixed” and “mobile” silos are breaking down, the FTTH Council Europe explores more in depth the synergies between Fibre and 5G.
The FTTH Council Europe is therefore launching a novel, quantitative analysis to understand the potential cost savings which could be made by building converged, 5G-fibre networks and the cost of non-convergence, which would be ultimately paid by end-users. The results of this study will be revealed at the FTTH Conference 2019 in Amsterdam (12-14 March).
