Maroc Telecom to offer FTTH to subscribers following ANRT approval

25 Jul 2014

Maroc Telecom, the country’s incumbent telecoms provider, has reportedly been authorised by the Autorite de Regulation de la Poste et des Telecoms (ARPT) to provide commercial fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services, Agence Ecofin reports. The development was announced by Abdeslam Ahizoune, the company’s CEO, during a presentation of the operator’s interim results; however, the executive pointed out that the date for the introduction of the service has not yet been set. Further, Mr Ahizoune revealed that Maroc Telecom has had the capability to deliver high speed fibre optic broadband access to subscribers for some time and that regulatory hurdles could be blamed for the delayed launch.
