Europe-wide alliance calls for full fibre wholesale-only model

The future roll out of full fibre via a wholesale-only model has been supported by a Europe-wide alliance of providers including CityFibre, Deutsche Glasfaser, Open Fiber, Reykjavikur and SIRO among other signatories.

They have joined forces to accelerate the build and uptake of full fibre services across Europe by profiling the benefits of the wholesale-only build model and challenging what they claim is the misuse of ‘fibre’ in consumer advertising across the continent.
Senior leaders from operators in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Iceland, and representatives from the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications and the FTTH Council Europe, met in Rome this month to discuss the future of the telecoms market.
CityFibre CEO Greg Mesch said: “Wholesale only has been at the heart of CityFibre’s strategy from day one and we welcome collaboration with our alliance partners across Europe.”
