Ono Launches 100 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 Trial in Spain

ONO, a Spanish cable operator serving 6.9 million homes, is undertaking a DOCSIS 3.0 trial with the aim of launching services in major cities of Spain later this year. The trial is occurring in Valladolid. ONO said its DOCSIS 3.0 deployment should initially deliver Internet downlink speeds of 100 Mbps, later scaling to 200 Mbps and 400 Mbps. Other benefits are expected to include a graceful upgrade migration for the network, greater security via support for AES encryption, support for IPv6 and wider use of upstream spectrum from 42 MHz to 65 MHz.

As of the end of Q1 2008, ONO was serving 1,241,731 High Speed Internet customers. For 2007, ONO reported revenue of EUR 1.616 billion and EUR 642 million in EBITDA,http://www.ono.es
