FTTH connections questioned

A couple weeks ago, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) advocates gathered at the FTTH Council's annual conference celebrated the technology's two-millionth subscriber connected. That data, which came from RVA Market Research in a study commissioned by the FTTH Council, is now being questioned by another research firm, BroadbandTrends, which says the true number is closer to 1.8 million.

We could probably run a daily newsletter purely based on the accusations telecom market researchers make about the validity of one another's numbers, so maybe this isn't anything extraordinary. Either way, we should find out more about where FTTH connections stand early next week when Verizon announces its third-quarter earnings and related subscriber figures.
