FTTH Capex estimates may be too high.

Dutch learn to do Fibre cheaper.


....The big picture substantiates the idea that practice trumps theory. The construction companies have managed to cut the average cost (Capex) per connection by approx. 15 % in the last 5+ years. That is already impressive, and there is more. The pressure to reduce Capex has lead to various experiments with new materials (packaging) and new processes that are very promising in my opinion. (The details are not yet available for publication). Some of these innovations may turn out to be generic and applicable in other countries as well, some of them may be specific for the Dutch urban areas.

This observation shows that generic cost calculations made by consultants may seriously be overestimating the actual investment levels, as no learning curve effect is taken into account. It shows also that sticking to an architecture and keep on improving and improving and improving pays off very well. Which is good news for FttH…..

Especially consultants that get most of their income from Mobile Industry. Ones beloved of Comreg & Irish Government.
