World's Largest EPON Tender?

Updated:2009/6/15 16:23

China Unicom Ltd. (NYSE: CHU) is believed to have issued a tender for EPON equipment to support the rollout of 11 million high-speed fiber access broadband lines, according to a report from Interfax China.

If true, this is further evidence that China's EPON market is hotting up fast, and that Asia/Pacific's preference for EPON is ongoing, though China Telecom Corp. Ltd. (NYSE: CHA) is also checking out GPON's potential.

China Unicom is believed to have built out around 100,000 EPON lines so far, substantially less than China Telecom's 4 million lines at the close of 2008, according to Chinese vendor ZTE Corp. (Shenzhen: 000063; Hong Kong: 0763).
