Awards

The FTTH Awards recognise the outstanding support of an operator and three individuals that have actively contributed to the acceleration of FTTH in Europe in the last 12 months:
 

  • The newly introduced Champion of Diversity Award is intended to recognise the unrelent efforts made by a company to address the diversity issue within the fibre industry

  • The Individual Award honours a single person for their unique efforts to make FTTH happen in Europe

  • The Operator Award acknowledges an operator company that has significantly contributed to the development and roll-out of FTTH in Europe

  • The Charles Kao Award honours an individual who has made an outstanding life-long achievement and contribution to promoting full fibre connectivity (globally, but particularly in Europe)

Winners will be announced during a dedicated ceremony on 19 April 2023, during the plenary session of the FTTH Conference 2023, taking place in Madrid, Spain.

The FTTH Awards now cover four categories

Champion of Diversity Award

Champion of Diversity Award

The fibre industry relies upon the talents of the individuals that work within it. When competing for the best talent we must leverage all those in our community that can contribute, from all genders and all backgrounds and we must reflect the communities that we serve. Initiative of the FTTH Council Europe's Women in Fibre Committee, this award is given to a company that is demonstrating diversity in action with best practises and initiatives. The winner will be selected based upon their workforce diversity metrics, a demonstrated history of encouraging talent from all genders and backgrounds and a plan for the future in order to sustain momentum. All shortlisted finalists will be invited to present their diversity best practices at a dedicated session within the conference programme.

FTTH Individual Award

FTTH Individual Award

This award honours an individual for the special efforts made to enable FTTH in Europe. The nominee can be a manager who has made a clear decision to support FTTH roll-out; a technician for implementing a new technology solution for FTTH or a decision maker who has contributed to creating a favourable environment for FTTH.

FTTH Operator Award

FTTH Operator Award

This award is given to an operator company that has made a clear decision in favour of FTTH in Europe. The winner will be selected not only based on the size of the network and investment made but also on factors such as the economic, political and competitive environment for driving FTTH roll-out.

Charles Kao Award

Charles Kao Award
