For most individuals, 2020 will be remembered for one reason. However, for us at BT Wholesale and everyone else working in the channel and connectivity, this year also represents a watershed moment in the development of the UK’s fibre to the premises (FTTP) market.
We worked with Megabuyte on the whitepaper ‘The move towards FTTP gathers momentum’ and it reveals several exciting milestones. Namely that FTTP rollouts are now reaching critical mass, meaning our channel partners (CPs) should really start thinking about capitalising on the opportunity to boost the value of their businesses through reselling fibre connectivity products.
Coronavirus has reinforced the importance of strong and reliable connectivity, and our CPs must decide whether they supply FTTP, as well as other iterations of fibre connectivity, or continue to rely on legacy products. With the 2025 switch-off on the horizon, now is the time for CPs to make the transition. Here are some key takeaways from the whitepaper.
