Only 15% of U.S. Buildings Have Fiber

From Vertical Systems:
Fiber penetration extends to 15% of U.S. commercial buildings, up from 10% in 2003

Fiber penetration now extends to 15.3% of U.S. commercial buildings with twenty or more employees, up from 10.2% in 2003.  All remaining locations comprise the “Fiber Gap”, or business locations with no fiber access facilities.  Optical fiber is key enabler for the delivery of broadband network services at speeds up to Gigabit rates, including Business Ethernet, IP VPNs, VoIP and IP video.  

Said Rosemary Cochran, Principal at Vertical Systems Group: “Fiber gaps are closing, but not rapidly enough to meet market demand across all customer segments.”
