(2) (Fiber To The Premises) The installation of optical fiber from the carrier directly into the home or office. Also called "fiber to the home" (FTTH), it is a more costly deployment for the carrier than "fiber to the neighborhood," which uses existing wiring from an external location to multiple properties.
