25 Jul 2014

Swiss cableco UPC Cablecom has extended its network to pass more than two million homes, having completed the installation of a fibre-optic network in Ticino. The operator, Switzerland’s second largest internet service provider (ISP) after incumbent Swisscom, noted in a press release that it has invested more than CHF1.1 billion (USD1.22 billion) over the last five years and now offers speeds of up to 250Mbps across its entire footprint. Looking forward, Cablecom claimed that the next technology upgrade was ‘just around the corner’ and would see speeds lifted to more than 1Gbps.
