Rostelecom claims broadband subscriber base passes nine million

16 Nov 2012

State-owned telecoms giant Rostelecom has announced that its broadband subscriber base passed the nine million mark at the beginning of November 2012, which it says is almost four times more than its nearest competitor. The national operator has indicated that the growth in high speed internet users is being driven by the uptake of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) platforms, with the company’s fibre-optic user base reportedly doubling on an annual basis.
