Nearly three-quarters of Uruguayan fixed broadband subscribers (75%) accessed the internet using fibre-optic networks at the end of June 2019, according to the latest update from communications regulator Ursec. The figure is 5 percentage points higher than in June 2018 thanks to addition of over 62,000 fibre subscribers over the 12-month period, said the watchdog. Internet accesses stood at 944,444 at the end of Q2 2019, with xDSL only accounting for 21 percent of the total.
