4 Feb 2014

Venezuela’s planned nationwide fibre-optic transmission network is 70.2% complete, meaning that 6,886km of the high speed backbone infrastructure has so far been lit, according to local regulator reports cited by Capacity Magazine. The national fibre network is designed to interconnect the south of the country with the northern coastal region via 213 nodes in 18 states supporting multi-play voice/data services. The total cost of the project, involving contracts with vendors including Huawei of China and France-based Alcatel-Lucent, is expected to reach USD400 million.
