HAKOM produces guidelines for fibre rollouts to shared buildings

8 Jul 2014

The Croatian Regulatory Authority for Network Industries (HAKOM) has published new guidelines for the deployment of fibre connections in shared residential or commercial units. The watchdog says building owners can select a single firm to provide the fibre infrastructure for the whole building, but that operator must make its fibre available on a wholesale basis to third-party providers so that the building’s occupants have a choice of service provider. HAKOM says the strategy will help to reduce costs of network deployment and also limit disruption for building users during the installation phase.
