EWZ passes 200,000 premises covered with fibre

Wednesday 19 April 2017 | 12:30 CET | News
The Zurich utilities group EWZ announced that its fibre-optic network has passed the milestone of 200,000 homes and businesses covered. That compares to a last report of 180,000 in June 2016. The group aims to reach 271,000 premises covered by the end of 2019, up from its original target of 218,000, in order to take account of new-build and city expansion. This would equal a penetration of around 90 percent in Zurich. The company said the extra coverage should be reached within its existing financing, of a CHF 400 million public loan.
