Australia ranks beyond 30 in global fibre take-up

In the latest global fibre-to-the-home/building rankings release, statistics show that Australia is lagging behind 30 other developed countries who have at least one percent of fibre to the premises take-up.

The FTTH Council rankings has South Korea leading the way with an impressive 50% penetration while the likes of Hong Kong 46% and Japan 43% come in a close second and third respectively.

At the other end of the spectrum, countries such as Malaysia, Ukraine, Canada, Turkey and even Romania (30th) make the list while Australia is still yet to register.

It’s anticipated that Australia will rocket up this list over the next few years as the National Broadband Network starts to take shape.
