Global Capacity LogoExpanding services beyond your network footprint into the U.S. can be the right turn to profitability, but whether that experience will be profitable and accelerate your business or have you in the breakdown lane depends on how the expansion is planned. There is much more to consider than just plotting a route from point A to point B. Visibility into the local connectivity markets is critical to your success. Whether it is one location or a thousand, knowing you are choosing the right connectivity service at the right price for your customers’ Internet and business applications can be challenging.

2015 U.S. Business Fiber Penetration Reaches 46.2%



Growth spurred by expanded fiber installations and new building construction


BOSTON, MA, APRIL 14, 2016 – The U.S. Fiber Gap continued to narrow in 2015 as business fiber penetration in commercial buildings grew to 46.2%, according to latest research from Vertical Systems Group. This benchmark figure quantifies fiber-connected multi-tenant and company-owned buildings in the U.S. with twenty or more employees, which equates to more than two million individual business establishments. The Fiber Gap refers to the remaining ‘unlit’ commercial buildings without optical fiber facilities that readily connect to business network services.

VerticalSystems“Fiber penetration increased in 2015 as network operators targeted greenfield metro areas and mid-size multi-tenant buildings for new installations. Fiber access to network services is additionally being pre-built into nearly every new commercial building across the U.S.,” said Rosemary Cochran, principal at Vertical Systems Group. “Business customers want ready accessibility to fiber-based services for the capacity and scalability necessary to future-proof their networks. Consequently, a top competitive differentiator for both wholesale and retail service providers is the geographic reach of their on-net fiber footprints.”

Fiber is the most widely deployed access technology for delivery of Carrier Ethernet services in the U.S. Fiber is also increasingly implemented to support higher speed Hybrid VPNs, Cloud and Internet connectivity, mobile traffic aggregation and emerging SDN-enabled Dynamic Network Connectivity Services (DNCS).

Comprehensive analysis and quantification of U.S. Business Fiber penetration is available now exclusively through the @Fiber research track of Vertical Systems Group’s ENS (Emerging Networks Service). Research content covers a full update for 2015 plus historical data for the period 2004 through 2015. ENS Research Topics include an analysis of current fiber trends, fiber penetration rates by customer segment (Large Enterprise and SMB) and detailed statistics for four building size segments (20-50 employees, 51-100 employees, 101-250 employees, >250 employees).
