Fixed Wireless Access Landscape



Report Summary:

While Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) is the preferred way to deliver consumer broadband services, its high capital cost makes it infeasible in some geographies. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is a sound second choice. This report describes use cases for FWA, examines the global FWA market, and provides guidance on key questions about FWA.
