Swisscom announced a broadband milestone: over a million homes and businesses already connected to ultra-fast broadband network.
At the beginning of 2014, Swisscom started to roll out VDSL vectoring technology into those areas where Fibre to the Curb had been installed/ Across Switzerland, Swisscom has switched 200,000 homes and businesses over to vectoring, which makes it one of Europe's top providers. The roll-out of Fibre to the Street (FTTS) has already been completed in ten municipalities, for example Croy (VD), Wila (ZH), Iragna (TI), Prêles (BE) and Rothenthurm (SZ). The network is currently being rolled out to over 100 further municipalities.
Thanks to FTTS, broadband speeds of up to 100 Mbps can now be achieved. Swisscom is also collaborating with Huawei to develop G.fast, a successor technology to VDSL.
