Luxembourg telco Tango has planned a commercial launch of fibre broadband services for September 2011. Tango has been deploying optical-fibre as part of the government’s scheme to give the Grand Duchy’s entire population access to connection speeds of 100Mbps by 2015. The operator plans to incorporate a new VDSL option either as part of a triple-play bundle, or as a stand-alone product with prices ranging from EUR49.99 (USD72.09), EUR59.99, or EUR74.99 per month for speeds of up to 30Mbps, 50Mbps or 100Mbps, subject to location. Tango joins P&T Luxembourg, which last week announced its plans to roll out its own offering ‘LuxFibre’, also in September and expects around 25% of households to have access to the maximum 100Mbps.
According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Luxembourg’s household penetration for broadband was 81.9% at the end of March 2011.
