The main enemy to FTTP is the regulatory environment. If that become more supportive things can change fairly rapidly.Would you like to explain your reaons for this statement.
No. It's pretty self evident. Check out the difference in the environment in Spain and Portugal, nations Sharon White belated about recently while conveniently ignoring the regulatory differences, and the one Ofcom create.
As a spoiler, they don't have a bunch of companies desperately petitioning the regulator to force the incumbent to keep copper, and allowed the incumbent to keep their FTTP investment to themselves in some areas for a period of time.
They even allow copper retirement. Perish the thought.
