The majority of the VDSL2 vectoring activity has been taking place in the United States and in Europe. A recent Broadband Trends forecast said that even though EMEA represents the largest opportunity, North America has the highest penetration of VDSL2 vectoring at 42 percent of total VDSL ports.
Besides P&T, a number of other high profile VDSL2 vectoring deployments and trials include Belgacom, TDC Denmark, Telekom Austria, and Türk Telekom. One of the most anticipated deployments of VDSL2 bonding and vectoring in 2013 will come from Deutsche Telekom (DTE.DE), which announced in December that it would spend €6 billion ($7.9 billion) to build out a FTTC network to expand download speeds on its copper lines from 50 to 100 Mbps.
Not every household has a coaxial wiring installed for cable TV but almost every household has telephone wiring (twisted pair) behind the walls. For carriers expanding into new markets what better opportunities are there than to leverage their existing copper wiring investment (telephone wiring) to deliver communication and entertainment (HDTV) simultaneously and compete with cablecos / satellite-TV providers. A 100 mb/s downstream bandwidth is more than enough to provide 1080P resolution or beyond like the new ULTRA HD standard.
