Vodafone Spain to complete fibre speed upgrade by October

Tuesday 21 August 2018 | 10:03 CET | News
Vodafone Spain will finally complete its promise to automatically double the speed of its fibre-optic plans in October, around 6 months after announcing the upgrade, reports Xataka Movil. The operator pledged to follow rivals Telefonica and Orange by increasing the download speed of its basic fibre-optic plan from 50Mbps to 100Mbps, with the 120Mbps and 300Mbps plans rising to 600Mbps with no corresponding price hike. The delay has been in part due to the ongoing upgrade of its HFC cable network with Docsis 3.1 technology with a view to offering a fibre-like performance, said the report.
