Ukraine’s leading cableco Volia is in the process of transferring its HFC cable network to the EuroDOCSIS technology standard to increase data bandwidth by 30%, it revealed in a release on its website. The cable TV and broadband internet provider first rolled out the EuroDOCSIS platform last year in Lutsk, where previously it offered TV services only, meaning internet subscribers in that city were served via the new standard from the outset. Volia says it will implement the new standard in eleven other cities where its broadband services are currently provided via the DOCSIS standard, and has already begun to replace modems and other subscriber equipment to support the new network platform in five cities, Kiev, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Lviv and Kirovograd, where all its internet users will receive the performance advantages of EuroDOCSIS by autumn of this year. Users owning DOCSIS 3.0 modems already have built-in support for the EuroDOCSIS upgrade – with 180,000 users already having this type of modem by end-April, Volia disclosed – and it will continue to replace remaining older modems.
