Furukawa tests pay-as-you-grow fibre network installation model with Vivo

Friday 7 December 2018 | 11:17 CET | News

Furukawa is testing the "pay as you grow" model with Telefonica/Vivo in Brazil, reports Teletime. According to the president of Furukawa Latam, Foad Sheikhzadeh, this model allows the operator to optimise its capital expenditure. The pay-as-you-grow model was developed in Brazil by the company and aims to meet demand more precisely, instead of the operator having to deploy a network of homes passed.

A trial is under way in Brasilia and another trial has been completed in Uberlandia. The Brazilian operator is deploying a fibre network from scratch in new cities.
