I am in the process updating my metro fiber and lit building list, so today I am soliciting for any new or simply more recent data that anyone may have. If a company is already on the list and keeps updated numbers in a public document, I will likely find it easily enough. If not, feel free to send updated information along. All structures that consume bandwidth count, from carrier hotels to general stores and even wireless towers. While a few companies on the list have European assets which are included in their numbers, for the most part metro fiber and lit building information in Europe has been harder to come by. I'm going to at least try to make a dent in it this quarter though.
Back in March I began collecting data on fiber counts and also asked about the ownership of the fiber assets. The former was interesting and useful and and will remain on the list. The latter resulted in a resounding chorus of 'we own it all' and there were few exceptions. Perhaps there was a better way of asking the question, but what I got from it was not terribly illuminating. Oh well, can't win them all on the first try... So for now my comments on that subject will have to be anecdotal, I may revisit the question at a later time.
