TDC to offer Gigabit services to 10% of population by year-end

18 Nov 2016

Danish telecoms provider TDC (operating as YouSee) has revealed plans to cover 10% of the country’s population with HFC DOCSIS 3.1 technology by the end of the year, while aiming to offer 1Gbps services to most households in Denmark by the end of 2017, Global Telecoms Business reports. The company’s CTO Carsten Bryder said that the HFC cable ‘will play the biggest part in the national programme’, while existing fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure will also form part of the strategy, by delivering broadband to 10% of the homes. Existing DSL infrastructure, however, will not be upgraded with G.fast – the bonding technology that potentially allows speeds of 1Gbps on short connections (up to 500m from the streetside cabinet) – with Bryder cited as saying: ‘G.fast is not part of our strategy.’
