Juan C. Colina, regional director, Middle East for Corning Optical Communications has been appointed as president of the FTTH Council MENA, following recent elections.

“Fibre-to-the-home plays a critical role in transforming economies through enhanced digital infrastructure. I am delighted to support the FTTH Council MENA in its important work to raise awareness and accelerate the availability of fibre-based, ultra-high-speed access networks,” Colina said. “I am honoured to have been chosen for this position and look forward to what the next two years will bring.”

As of September 2017, the region as a whole boasted a 46 percent FTTH penetration rate, with the UAE maintaining the top position worldwide at nearly 100 percent coverage.
