The beginning of the FTTH rollout and drivers behind a digital society

In the second episode of The Fiber Pod, we meet Crister Mattsson, a person with a long experience from the fiber optic market, both in Sweden and on a European level.

Crister is a very knowledgeable person who has had several considerable positions within the FTTH industry throughout the years. In this episode we are discussing the very beginning of the fiber networks in Sweden, how it all started, the drivers behind FTTH and the importance for people to communicate. Crister also shares some memories and experiences from the work with the contribution to the EU commission, as an advisor for the last ten years, and shares insights from the books he has written, all about fiber and the digital society.

My favorite topic is the digital society, and it spells fiber.
