Orange has announced at its Investor Day in London that it's accelerating its Spanish fibre-optic rollout and is now targeting 16 million connected households by 2020, up from 14 million. The service offers symmetric speeds of up to 1Gbps and is now available in 11.6 million all over the country, with the initial target set to be reached sometime next year. Some EUR 2 billion is being made available to bring FTTH to a further 2 million homes, including more than 70 percent of towns with at least 5,000 inhabitants and 90 percent of those with 10,000 or more.
