Sweden, Taiwan, and Norway have 5 to 10 percent FTTH penetration. It identified 8 more countries with 1 to 5 percent FTTH penetration.

IPTV is an important driver for FTTH in North America and Europe. High speed data services tend to be the most important FTTH application in Asia. In any case, FTTH is an important enabler for advanced IPTV, especially multiple streams and HD.
