7/19/2007，According to the newest ranking report by FTTH council, Hongkong, a speical zone of China, leads the world in FTTH field by a 21.2% FTTH access rate. Even mainland China has a FTTH access rate more than 1%. Taiwan, a waiting-for-united province of China, also has an access rate more than 1%.
I am so supprised to see these data. Although I know Hongkong is so successful on their IPTV development, but I know most IPTV users in Hongkong are based on DSL technology, not FTTH.
For mainland China, consider the so big population, even 1% will be an amazing number. Mainland China has nearly 300 million homes, 1% will be 3 million homes. As I know, even 30K real FTTH homes in mainland China doesn't exit.
FTTH council is holding a conference in Beijing now, the number maybe is just used to make those MITT officers happy for a day.
