Swisscom said it has now connected over 1 million homes to ultra-fast broadband using a mixture of fibre-optic technologies, even outside major conurbations. Since the start of 2014, bandwidth has been increased at over 200,000 homes and businesses through vectoring, it said. In addition, ten municipalities have now been connected to Fibre to the Street (FTTS). These include Croy, Wila, Iragna, Preles and Rothenthurm. FTTS is now being extended to over 100 more municipalities, it added. Bandwidths of up to 100 Mbps are possible, with FTTH offering up to 1 Gbps.
