Macau residents to get ultra-high speed broadband

22 Nov 2011

Cable & Wireless Communications today published a press release confirming that its business in Macau, CTM, has launched a 250Mbps residential broadband service, providing local inhabitants with one of the fastest internet download speeds anywhere in the world. The statement notes that the new service more than doubles the previous top speed available from CTM’s fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network. The fibre-optic network, which was launched in October 2010, has been rolled out to the most densely populated areas of Macau. Commenting on today’s announcement, CTM chief executive, Vandy Poon, said: ‘The people of Macau are very technologically sophisticated and so we are delighted to be able to deliver truly world-class broadband speeds. This is a great demonstration of the capability of our engineering team at CTM and our commitment to quality. This ultra high speed internet connection will allow residents to access interactive services such as HD TV, video games and communications services, to get the most out of their digital life.’
