titleOpen Broadband

The Open Broadband initiative permeates virtually all Broadband Forum project areas. Read More.


Broadband networks have faced a rapid and unprecedented demand in recent years, and the attention has shifted to focusing on greater levels of Quality of Service and Quality of Experience rather than just high speed. This mirrors the quality and attentiveness from our members into each project and work, with the end-user at the heart of everything we do.

It has been great to see massive amounts of work ongoing and many projects proceeding to Straw and Final Ballot.

titleA Word from our Leadership Team:
Q3 Newsletter

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.

⚠️ Zoom Update

Goes into effect on 1 July 2022: Zoom is updating the registration confirmation page for meetings and webinars to improve the security of registration links. When an attendee registers for an event, the join link will no longer be displayed on the confirmation page in their web browser. Attendees will find the join link in an email confirmation. This change will help prevent attackers from obtaining a registration link using an email address they do not control personally and limit unwanted guests from joining meetings or webinars.

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.

  • The Wiki (also known as Confluence) is for administration - meetings, agendas, project descriptions, and more.
  • 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.

To determine if your company is a member of the Forum please see our Membership Listing page here.
