Telia Eesti to drop ADSL within four years

30 Nov 2016

Swedish-owned Estonian fixed and mobile operator Telia Eesti says it plans to phase out ADSL fixed broadband services within the next four years, after upgrading customers to alternative technologies. A report from Kasulik says the telco plans to use fibre, VDSL2+, and LTE equipment to replace older ADSL connections by end-2020. Around 90,000 of the firm’s 240,000 or so broadband customers currently use ADSL-based services. Approximately half of these will upgrade to fibre, 40% to VDSL2+ and, and 10% to LTE as a fixed line alternative.
