How to finance a FTTH project or FTTH network is one of the key questions for most of stakeholders who plan to build a fibre network. This workshop zooms in on the different possibilities to finance a FTTH network with a special focus on the practical implementation. Operators, who already benefited from external financing, will share their experience with the workshop participants.

13:00-14:30 Session 1: Public Financing

In this session the different sources for public financing are discussed. This includes national programmes as well as financing from the European Investment Bank and from infrastructure funds.

Orange Room 1

 

Presenter:

 

Richard Jones, Partner, Ventura Team LLP

 

This workshop will be focussed on the detailed business drivers of an FTTx implementation.   How can you make money and how do you avoid losing – because mistakes in FTTx are very costly.  This learning comes from our own profitable start-up (ranked in the top 5 globally for broadband service value by Point Topic and now serving 120,000 subscribers) as well as planning/implementing millions of homes passed for major operators across FTTx.
The workshop will include high levels of interaction and help people learn:
-where they should be paying attention in developing realistic plans for FTTx businesses
-why some operators are failing – and what they can do about this
-the role of other technologies such as DSL, WiMAX etc when you are developing an FTTx business plan (overview)
