Altice USA to skip Docsis 3.1, upgrade instead to FTTP

Wednesday 30 November 2016 | 09:14 CET | News
Update: 30 November 2016 | 12:04 CET
Cable operator Altice USA has announced plans to convert its hybrid fibre coax network to FTTP, skipping the upgrade to Docsis 3.1. Altice, which acquired the cable operators Suddenlink and Cablevision in the US and is already rolling out FTTH in France and Portugal, said it plans to start rolling out fibre in the US next year. Initial markets will be announced in the coming months. The five-year deployment schedule, called 'Generation Gigaspeed' by Altice, is planned to bring FTTP to the entire Optimum (former Cablevision) footprint and to most of the Suddenlink footprint.
