Vega lines up IPTV launch, FTTH rollouts

31 Oct 2012

Telecoms group Vega, owned by the Ukrainian SCM Group, has begun a project to prepare its network for the commercial launch of IPTV services, with the initial stage to involve testing the service in Odessa, where it received its first regional IPTV broadcasting licence. As reported by ProIT, Vega also revealed that it has begun work on constructing fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) local access infrastructure in selected urban areas, as well as Wi-Fi hotspots. TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes that Vega already operates a fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) network, offering internet access for consumers and businesses at up to 100Mbps, which had a presence in 33 cities as of September 2012, whilst it has previously piloted an IPTV service in Odessa.
