Abstract [en]

Fiber to the end-user (FTTx) has long been considered to be too expensive to be deployed to cover all end users especially those living in the far rural areas. The conclusion after working with some municipalities in Jamtland is now that FTTx is both technically and economically feasible. The architecture tested is an IP-Only broadband network capable of carrying end-user services up to 10/100Gbps to any point in the network. Building such a broadband infrastructure, is feasible mostly due to the fact that cost of standard IP-network components are diminishing and by utilizing novel network designs made possible because the limitations of the old Telecom infrastructure no longer apply and lastly that the take rate of permanent households is close to 100% due to the fact that the copper networks is removed.
