    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.

    titleOmdia 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.

    A word from Robin Mersh, Broadband Forum CEO:

    "With the last quarter of 2020 characterized by coronavirus, global lockdowns and the significance of broadband in our lives, our Q2 meeting marks a first in the Forum’s history. Although we should find ourselves in the picturesque setting of Melbourne, Australia – and not seeing all of you in person has been strange – this landmark meeting has run as smoothly as possible, enabling our important work to continue.

    The virtual sessions further emphasize the importance of fixed broadband. During the pandemic, I have been honored to see how operators have risen to the challenging spike in network traffic and how Broadband Forum standards have played their role. "Read more.
