2020 U.S. Fiber Lit Buildings LEADERBOARD

“The base of fiber lit buildings in the U.S. expanded in 2020, although the pace of new installations was hampered by the pandemic. As the economy rebounds in 2021, fiber providers have opportunities to monetize the millions of small and medium U.S. commercial buildings without fiber, as well as larger multi-tenant buildings with only a single fiber provider.”

Year-End 2020 Global Provider Ethernet LEADERBOARD

Four LEADERBOARD position changes;
AT&T and Colt retain top two ranks.

The global Ethernet services market declined slightly in 2020 due to pandemic related factors such as supply chain disruptions, travel restrictions and widespread office vacancies. We expect that demand for Ethernet bandwidth will rebound this year as multinational customers invest heavily in high-speed cloud and internet services for mission-critical applications.
