FTTP take rates pass 30%

Average take rates for fiber-to-the-premises services in North America have surpassed 30% for the first time in roughly three and a half years, according to new data released this week by RVA Market Research. Take rates took a dive in early 2005 as Verizon Communications began deploying fiber faster than it could turn up customers. The industry’s overall numbers bottomed at 18% that year but have been climbing steadily since. In competitive areas, Bell companies are seeing 35% take rates, RVA said. CLECs are averaging 29% (after a few years) — 55% in underserved areas (and in some small towns reaches as high as 85%); municipalities are averaging 54%, rural incumbents are averaging 58%, and real estate developers are averaging 80%, RVA said. “Take rates have been exceeding expectations in many cases,” said Michael Render, RVA’s founder. According to his latest numbers, 58% of FTTP users subscribe to video over the pipe.
