Abu Dhabi: world’s first FTTH city


Fibre to the home (FTTH) may sound like door-to-door carpet sales, but it’s actually the D’s Bs of connectivity. Super fast (100Mbps) optical broadband makes it the perfect gateway for HD video-on-demand, IPTV and online gaming. UAE telco Etisalat has announced that Abu Dhabi will be fully hooked up with FTTH by the third quarter of this year, with Sharjah and Dubai to follow. The whole country is expected to be hooked up by the end of 2011. Time to reconsider VoIP policies?
