|Swisscomm Will Connect 100,000 FTTH Households in 2009|
Swisscomm has begun connecting customers in Zurich, Basel and Geneva to its new FTTH service, and has set a target to hook up 100,000 homes by the end of 2009. In the same period, services will be extended to the cities of St. Gallen, Berne, Fribourg and Lausanne.
Swisscomm expects to launch new residential broadband services across the FTTH infrastructure in early 2009. They will complement an existing broadband portfolio that includes Bluewin TV, an IPTV service boasting 90,000 subscribers as of September 2008.
