Elisa upgrades network in Sastamala using micro-trenching

Tuesday 9 October 2018 | 14:42 CET | News
Finnish operator Elisa said it is laying fibre in Sastamala borough in the Pirkanmaa region using micro-trenching to speed up the process by up to ten times. This method causes less disruption to traffic and residents than traditional excavation methods, it said. Trenches of about 2.5 cm wide and 40 cm deep are cut into the asphalt for the cables to fit into. The usual method is to dig down to 70 cm.
