Europe needs a fibre infrastructure to stay competitive in the future. The only way to rapidly build this out to all of Europe is through standardisation. Eltel joins FTTH Council in Europe as the first company in the Construction industry with the ambition to drive innovative deployment methods and standardisation of design and material, which in turn will enable faster deployment of fibre.
Besides the design and material aspects are Eltel driving standardisation in terms of how to organise and run a fibre project efficiently, we call this initiative Eltel’s Fibre Force. Material suppliers and construction companies are welcome to join the Fibre Force to be able to benefit from Eltel’s best practices from Northern Europe where over 60% already has an FTTH access.
