We’re on the right path with our fibre strategy.
“Competition is fierce…But we had solid revenue performance again this quarter, thanks to our fibre to the home strategy and we continue to believe that we are on the right path…

“FibreOp has performed very well especially compared to our non-fibre markets – reinforcing our belief in our fibre strategy.”

The fiber business case stands up to scrutiny.
“We are quite happy with the penetrations that we are reaching in terms of fiber. You certainly will have seen in the presentation that we put out how little we have to spend in terms of maintenance repairs or customer care because of the heavy rains with those customers that have fiber. The fiber business case stands also against any scrutiny when it comes to OpEx.”

There’s a tremendous difference with fiber.
“… fiber to the home in Spain is absolutely the right technology… “And you can see… the potential of fiber versus some of the technologies, namely DOCSIS for example, which is probably the other technology that’s in the market. But you can see the tremendous difference in terms of upload and download potential of these technologies. And so therefore fiber to the home is in our consideration absolutely the right and the best choice going forward to cater to some of these customer demands, which are going to be crucial.”

We are growing thanks to fiber. Fiber works.
“What we have to understand with fiber is that it is a wonderful tool and for conquest in many areas – for example, Iles de France, for the first time in 10 years, we have stopped the decline of the growth of the very high broadband, and the first time in 10 years, we are growing thanks to fiber. “So fiber works, there is an appetite for it and feel for it, the customers, consumers, for the very high broadband services and this really bodes well for business in the future.”

AT&T sees high demand for gigabit speeds.
“It…is 1 million…businesses that we’ll be deploying fiber to — incremental businesses we will be deploying fiber to over the next two and a half years…
“Early successes have been above expectation. And where we can go in and deploy fiber and make provisioning commitments that are in the 60 to 90 day time horizon we are taking considerable share, we are having a lot of success. And the receptivity has been very, very high, the brand obviously is very strong when we go in and deploy fiber and then sell behind the fiber. So we’re having really good success. As the build catches momentum you will see this build… “And so, we will probably…do our own build in Austin and the business case is actually a very good business case.
“I think you are going to see that begin to manifest itself around the United States, and in not just AT&T and Google. You will see others doing this because the demand for really high-speed broadband via gigabit type fiber-based solutions on a targeted basis is going to be very, very high.”

We are signing up more customers with fiber.
“I think the fiber rollout has been progressing very well, and we have continued to sign up more and more customers from our ADSL into fiber, as well as attracting new customers into fiber…. “And a bulk of our fiber customers are ll now majority taking all our services, including our TV service.

100 Gigabits per second to customers by 2016.
“Verizon was the first company to deliver commercial long-haul service at 100 Gigabits per second. And our engineers, as they like to tell me, [say] today’s backbone will become tomorrow’s edge. So maybe five years from now or even sooner, Verizon will be selling 100 Gig directly to customers and will have terabytes in the background. So we are more than capable of handling the huge growth in video traffic that we expect to see in the years ahead.”

We’re creating a growth company based on fiber.
“We continue to have confidence that our investments in fiber, combined with the eventual monetization of CyrusOne, will create a fiber-based growth company with significant, sustainable free cash flows.”

I should have pushed fiber’s value even harder.
And so…if there is anything that we have done in…the last 12 months where I could have done a better job, it would have been to accelerate the idea that the fiber platform creates productivity opportunities that I probably didn’t push as hard as I should.”
