The National Broadband Network (NBN) policies

Source: FTTH Council MENA

The concept of a national broadband network (NBN) has been developed by governments around the world who are continuously examining the status of their infrastructure, assessing the sector and deciding whether existing networks need to be modernised or extended. This process of examination has given rise to the concept of an open fibre broadband network stimulated by government. 

As part of its Regulatory and Policy Committee’s mission, the FTTH Council MENA is committed to strengthening its cooperation with policy makers, governments and regulators in the region in order to positively influence relevant NBN policy development and have a positive impact on broadband deployment in general, and FTTH rollout in particular.

The FTTH Council MENA commissioned this report from Ventura Team to survey the current status of NBN policies in the MENA region in order to identify the most effective generic approach to help policy makers, governments and regulators make the right decisions in the matter of NBN policy and accelerate the FTTH deployment.

This report includes information, updates and generic recommendations that reflect the views and experience of the expert consultants.  The best practice will clearly vary depending on the local circumstances in each country. This report is specifically tailored to NBN/FTTH deployment policy and structured in several sections representing the findings of the study and leading to several suggestions and recommendations:

  • Study and analysis of the actual status of NBN/FTTH in 16 countries of the MENA region 
  • Observations regarding MENA approaches to NBN
  • Identification of 9 key dimensions for NBN policy
  • Comparison of the MENA status vs. the 9 dimensions
  • Suggestions/recommendations on each of the 9 key dimensions


The Executive Summary briefly describes the key findings before getting into the full details of each section. It is recommended to use the summary for a quick overview and for public communication.

We believe it is worth to focus on the execution of NBN plans in each country due to the general circumstances in the region that are rapidly changing from business and political perspectives. This will help the acceleration of FTTH deployment in the MENA region.
