Belgacom launches commercial VDSL2 vectoring service

Wednesday 19 February 2014 | 14:27 CET | News
Belgacom announced the commercial launch of its VDSL2 vectoring service based on equipment from Alcatel-Lucent. The service offers speeds up to 70 Mbps, more than double the existing VDSL2 offer. It will initially be available in Mechelen, Herstal, Laken, Roeselare and Bergen, with more cities added from April. By 2016, the entire copper network, including 22,000 fibre-enabled cabinets, should be upgraded to the faster speeds. Belgacom has been working with Alcatel-Lucent since 2011 on developing the vectoring technology. Other partners include home gateway providers Sagemcom and Technicolor
