Swisscom fibre-to-the-home

December 16, 2008

Swisscom has started connecting Swiss homes to its fibre-to-the-home network and expects to have hooked up 100,000 homes by the end of 2009. The company has already laid out a fibre-to-the-node network to neighbourhoods and fibre-to-the-office to large companies, and has now started work on connecting homes with fibre-to-the-home in Zurich, Basel and Geneva. Swisscom plans to further extend the network in 2009 to include residential FTTH connections in the cities of St. Gallen, Berne, Fribourg and Lausanne. The first fibre-based broadband services will be commercially launched for residential customers and SMEs in the first half of next year.
