UPC purchases Euthal fibre network

Friday 27 January 2017 | 11:33 CET | News
Swiss network operator UPC has purchased a fibre-optic network in Euthal from the local antenna cooperative GGAE. As of 1 January, UPC took over ownership of the network, which currently has 180 customers. UPC has been a long-standing partner of GGAE and already offers UPC products on the network. The customer base should therefore experience no change from the ownership handover, UPC said in a statement. The infrastructure, located in the canton of Schwyz, was first established in the 1970s as a cable television network and subsequently upgraded into a fibre-optic network.
