Telefonica to make all fibre services symmetric from May

Wednesday 23 March 2016 | 10:59 CET | News
Telefonica (Movistar) has confirmed that it will begin to upgrade its FTTH network to a symmetric download and upload service in May. The operator will introduce a symmetric service in its 30 Mbps and 300 Mbps options with a view to competing with rivals such as Jazztel, which has offered a 200 Mbps download and upload service for over two years. Orange Spain introduced a symmetric 300 Mbps service last August, followed by Vodafone in December
