Telefonica doubles fibre speed, ups maximum to 600Mbps

Monday 21 May 2018 | 09:06 CET | News
Telefonica has started increasing the minimum speed of its Movistar-branded fibre-optic service from 50Mbps to 100Mbps and the maximum from 300Mbps to 600Mbps, reports ADSL Zone. The company promised it would double the current symmetric speed of its service for Movistar Fusion and fibre only subscribers when it hiked prices earlier this year and some customers have already confirmed the improvement. However, the report specifies that the speed will only be increased for those who specifically request it by calling customer service or requesting the change via online chat.
