Will FTTH become FTEH (fiber to every home?)

Emerging markets may embrace FTTH more than more mature markets as new construction will often include fiber as a standard option by 2010, Hong Kong-based Aspen Optics says, explaining its expansion into the international market.

Most residential and commercial properties under construction in the UAE, for example, are fiber ready as the Emirates pursue high-speed connectivity. The governments of Singapore and Australia also have been active in sponsoring the deployment of fiber and infrastructure upgrades to expand optical networks.

Aspen says increasing demand for high speed broadband in commercial, industrial, medical applications is pushing the use of fiber instead of copper.
