Antel targets 500,000 FTTH customers by year-end

8 Apr 2014

Uruguay’s national telecoms operator Administracion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Antel) is aiming to increase the number of households connected to its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network to 500,000 by the end of this year, the company’s president Carolina Cosse is quoted by El Pais as saying. At present, around 288,000 customers are connected to Antel’s fibre-optic infrastructure, which passes about 740,000 homes in the country. Last year the state-owned company said it will invest USD1.112 billion in its operations by 2017, around USD727 million of which will be spent on its access network, including the rollout and expansion of its FTTH infrastructure. Cosse also revealed that Antel’s 4G LTE network, which was launched in December 2011, covers 80% of the capital Montevideo and 99% of Punta del Este.
