OTE is testing a new FTTH network in the capital Athens that supports 1Gbps speeds in the municipality. As part of the trial, OTE replaced cable with fibre at approximately 50 households and enterprises. End-users receive internet access at symmetrical speeds of 1Gbps at no extra charge. OTE said it intensified its construction plan to bring fibre optics to neighbourhoods to offer broadband internet with VDSL and VDSL Vectoring. FTTH constitutes a strategic mission and an integral part of OTE Group's technological plans, the company added.
