Orange Slovensko to invest Sk1 billion in optical network

Mobile operator Orange Slovensko will invest approximately Sk1 billion by the end of the year in an optical network with terminal devices on customers' premises.

The company thus confirms the plan of its shareholder, the group France Telekom, to build a fixed telecommunications network based on Fiber to the Home (FTTH) technology, i.e., signal transmission through optical-fibre devices terminated directly on the premises of customers, the company announced.

Orange Slovensko plans to build optical units in ten Slovak towns by the end of 2007. The investment is to enable an introduction of optical units in nearly 200,000 households. The firm has further invested more than Sk2 billion in building optical data circuits more than 2,000 kilometres long, and investment in the firm's IP network will reach over Sk300 million.
