Cablecos jump ship to FTTH

16 Dec 2014

More than 50% of Peru’s cable operators have started migrating to a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) platform in 2014, Produ writes, citing Ovidio Rueda, the president of the Peruvian Cable TV Association (Asociacion Peruana de Television por Cable, APTC). The official was quoted as saying: ‘Our organisation is fully committed to deliver more and better services with total quality.’ Rueda added that the APTC’s members have signed agreements to combat piracy and ‘informality’ – the latter referring to the practice of operators deliberately under-reporting subscriber numbers to avoid paying higher fees.
