    Broadband Forum members converged on Antwerp, Belgium, getting together again for our first face-to-face quarterly meeting since March 2020. Presentations and meetings to shape the future of broadband provided endless opportunities to export and import innovative ideas and projects.

    We would like to extend a special thanks to Nokia for sponsoring this meeting, as well as putting together an excellent social and networking event.

    Last year, Belgium’s Federal Council of Ministers announced its national broadband plan, which aims to eliminate the remaining white areas where high speed services are unavailable and roll-out new broadband technologies. Read More.

    Omdia Fiber Development Index

    Just Released: A summary version of the Fiber Development Index is now available only to members of the Broadband Forum. 

    Omdia’s Fiber Development Index tracks and benchmarks the fiber development across 88 countries. Unlike other fiber benchmarks that largely track coverage or household penetration, as fiber investment is vital to the quality delivery of all data services, Omdia’s benchmark takes into account a much wider set of metrics including fiber household coverage, household penetration, business penetration, mobile cell site fiber penetration, backbone investment, average download and upload speeds, jitter, and latency.

    • Jira is a project management database used to progress BBF projects, and holds draft Working Texts (WTs), contributions, and ballot comments.
    • Bitbucket is a code repository.
    • Bamboo is a continuous integration server.

    Additional software tools include FishEye, Crucible, SonarQube, Artifactory, and others - these are used for BBF's Open Broadband (OB) work.

    All BBF members have access to these tools - Sign up and review our members-only FAQ for more information.
