While we mentioned Loma Linda’s fiber plans last week, the truth is that the U.S. falls behind many countries in Europe and Asia when it comes to fiber deployments (which many readers kindly pointed out). The OECD says that fiber is becoming more important for countries with high broadband penetrations, and that Japan leads its list of fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) users with 6.3 million fiber subscribers in June 2006 — the OECD says the number of Japanese fiber subscribers outnumbers the total number of broadband subscribers in many of the OECD countries. Even countries that traditionally don’t have advanced broadband networks are looking into fiber, as the cost of deployments is dropping. The International Herald Tribune says that countries like Bangladesh, Brazil, Pakistan and the Cayman Islands are betting on fiber over older broadband options.
