Fibre has been identified as the top priority in terms of investment for fixed line operators over the next 24 months. Investment in fibre was followed by cloud and IPTV/video by respondents to Telecoms.com Intelligence’s Industry Survey 2013.

On a scale of importance from one to five, 50.7 per cent of respondents rated fibre as five – the most important – as an area of investment over the next two years. A further 31.9 per cent rated it four and the average rating out of five for fibre was 4.27.

Cloud and IPTV/video followed, notching up averages of 3.86 and 3.80 respectively; over 65 per cent of respondents rated each area as four or five. Legacy network infrastructure received the lowest score, an average of 2.90, suggesting that fixed line operators are looking to the future, rather than investing in improving the assets they already have.

The Telecoms.com Intelligence Industry Survey 2013, which will be published on February 18th, collected data from almost 2,000 industry respondents, including 600 operator employees from 260 different operators worldwide.
