Ziggo starts fibre in new-build areas, but underlying services offer not changing

Wednesday 7 July 2021 | 13:14 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
Dutch cable operator Ziggo said it's started using fibre technology in sufficiently large new-build projects, rather than HFC (hybrid fibre coaxial). The main driver for the decision appears to be cost savings, with a FTTH line costing around a third less to deploy than an HFC line. After discussing the move with Ziggo, the most important thing to conclude is that this is no major shift in strategy for the company, and the consequences will be limited.
