November 15, 2007
From David Del Valle in Madrid
TelefÃ³nica is launching a trial on its FTTH (fibre to the home) network in Madrid and Barcelona to test Internet broadband access at 30 Megabytes in a combined triple play offer that also includes its IPTV service, Imagenio.
The triple play service, at a price of E9 until next September 2008, will be distributed to 54,000 clients in Madrid and Barcelona in this pre-commercial period. The company plans to have more than 1,000 FFTH clients by the end of the year. The Telecommunications Market Commission has given its authorisation to the operation, approving a fee of E6 for the basic package and E9 for the familiar package.
