Fiber to the home. Deployment of direct fiber optic connections to consumers' homes, allowing for wide bandwidth connections. FTTH faces technical hurdles (amplification of signals in the upstream direction), but the most significant factor holding it back is the cost of laying fiber optic cables. As such, FTTH is not expected to be the only wideband access solution, but it will be deployed selectively and will coexist with DSL access solutions over copper pairs. FTTO (fiber to the office) is more prevalent, because large office buildings contain enough users and demand for services to justify the cost of laying fiber.
