Proliferation and availability of Internet-enabled devices is rapidly driving the popularity of digital and connected services. Parallel to that, the demand for high bandwidths is increasing so exponentially that in future it can only be covered by fiber optic networks. Despite a clear need for action, the availability of fiber optic connections in Germany is still very poor in comparison with international levels.
Attractive and future-proof market of fiber optics is currently being identified by more and more players as a profitable investment in the future. However, high cost of necessary civil engineering currently represent a significant barrier to market entry. Nationwide expansion of own fiber optic network offers municipal actors, such as municipal utilities, the opportunity to strengthen their own strategic positioning and to generate high economic earnings potential.
