How does the Broadband Adoption (ROIC resource manager) setting impact premises passed, customer count and resulting fair share?
Broadband Adoption setting is intended to simulate population’s propensity to purchase any broadband product, effectively acting as a haircut between total number of addresses that the new network passes, and how many of those addresses are revenue-generating (i.e. addressable locations).
For example, a fiber network passing 100 addresses, with 90% broadband adoption, is going to be show up in Arrow as 100 points that need to be connected (100 ports incurring capex), but only 90 Premises with revenue-generating potential. Capturing 100% of prospects in such area equates to capturing revenues from 90 subscribers. Similarly Customer Penetration is calculated off the base of addressable premises (90 in this example).
Housing Unit Occupancy Rate, while not available as separate setting in Arrow, can be combined with Broadband Adoption to derive a combined haircut from total housing units passed by the network and the number of potential customers.
