ETSI White Paper: Fibre Development Index: Driving Towards an F5G Gigabit Society

This White Paper will address the main driving forces for fibre investment, proposing a way forward for a
fibre development index (FDI), including the definition of country clusters that present similar stages of
development, requirements, and evolution paths. Finally, it proposes some future directions,
recommendations, and related actions.
With this White Paper, the authors intend to set the guidelines for an FDI and the fundamentals for
related standardization work in this scope.
