Antel FTTH connections reach 350,000

9 Jul 2014

Uruguay’s national telecoms operator Administracion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Antel) has connected around 350,000 households to its high speed fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network, El Pais cites the company’s general manager, Horacio Andres Tolosa, as saying. The total represents around 50% of all Uruguayan homes with a connection to the internet, he added. Antel is aiming to increase the number of FTTH households to 500,000 by the end of this year. 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.
