A Scottish broadband provider has been chosen to develop fibre-to-the-home (FttH) access by three separate projects in Europe.

Emtelle, which is based in the Borders area, will begin work in the Dutch cities of Dordrecht and Eindhoven, as well as Saffle in Sweden.

The news represents the growing demand for FttH connections on the continent, with Emtelle alone set to bring access to 40,000 homes.

Emtelle's chief marketing officer, Tibor van Melsem Kocsis, has pointed out the potential advantage that FttH technology can bring to business.

The FttH Council Europe Board member said: "FttH facilitates new services, business models and revenue streams.

"More effort will therefore need to be made to inform stakeholders of future challenges, and of how FttH alone can transform those challenges into impressive revenue-generating opportunities."
