8 May 2014

Saudi Telecom Company (STC), the country’s leading telco in terms of subscribers, has announced that it has passed around 900,000 households with its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network. Going forward, the operator will continue to extend the footprint of its fibre network although no time-frame has been provided; the FTTH network supports downlink speeds of up to 200Mbps.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, STC introduced its FTTH services in August 2010, with the service being available in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam at launch. Over 600 locations in sixteen cities/towns were covered by October 2013, and by year-end the company revealed that a total of 830,000 households had been covered by the network.
