Cable & Wireless Panama tests G.fast with Huawei

7 Jan 2016

Cable & Wireless Panama (CWP) and Chinese vendor Huawei have announced what they claim is ‘the first successful trial of the fastest copper based broadband service across Latin America using leading G.fast technology’. Utilising the existing copper infrastructure of CWP’s parent company Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC), the trial ran for two months and included the deployment of Huawei’s latest multi-service access node equipment. It successfully achieved speeds averaging 500Mbps downlink and 150Mbps uplink, over CWP’s.
