Euskaltel to install Docsis 3.1 in Galicia, Asturias

Tuesday 31 October 2017 | 10:25 CET | News
Spanish regional operator Euskaltel is set to upgrade the networks of its Asturian and Galician units to Docsis 3.1 technology with a view to powering its 4K UHD pay-TV service and better competing with rivals offering FTTH. Euskaltel acquired regional broadband operator Telecable Asturias earlier this year for EUR 686 million meaning the Basque group has now integrated the three major regional operators of northern Spain after buying Galician cable provider R for a total of EUR 1.19 billion in November 2015.
