Huawei, Swisscom to cover 85% of Switzerland with G.fast

Friday 11 December 2015 | 13:16 CET | News
At a G.fast event in Ittingen, Huawei Switzerland presented a new network system to provide 85 percent of homes and businesses with ultra broadband in Switzerland by 2020 with the help of Swisscom, Cetoday.ch reports. According to the speakers, G.fast offers speeds of up to 500 Mbps. Through G.fast, ultra broadband can be expanded faster and more easily than FTTH, Huawei said. No extra measures have to be taken, because the copper wires are already installed at the house, so consumers can install the router themselves.
