Tuesday 6 September 2016 | 13:50 CET | News
Vodafone Spain intends to launch a symmetric (download and upload) 1 Gbps offer in 2017 after upgrading its HFC cable network to Docsis 3.1 technology, reports Cinco Dias, citing the operator's CEO Antonio Coimbra. During his intervention at the 30th telecommunications and digital economy meeting at Menendez Pelayo university in Santander, Vodafone Spain's CEO said the aim was to accelerate the company's high-speed fibre and cable rollout to reach a total of 10 million Spanish households in March 2017 thanks in part to the joint fibre build with Orange.
