Bulgaria’s FTTH/B Household Penetration Rate at 10% - FTTH Council Europe

Bulgaria boasted a 10% penetration rate of fibre-to-the-home/building (FTTH/B) in terms of households in December, the FTTH Council Europe said.

The council's annual ranking, released last week, tracks global deployment of fibre networks in 30 economies worldwide. It showed that the top economies in terms of the number of FTTH/B connections are Japan (22.2 million), China (16.9 million), South Korea (10.4 million), the U.S. (9.6 million) and Russia (4.5 million). South Korea continues to lead in terms of market penetration with FTTH/B reaching 58% of households in the country in December.

According to data released earlier by the council, Bulgaria's FTTH household penetration rate stood at around 9.0% at the end of June.

Belgium-based FTTH Council Europe is an industry organisation that aims to accelerate the FTTH adoption by all broadband stakeholders through education and promotion.
