Estonia’s Starman upgrading to FTTH instead of DOCSIS 3.1

11 May 2017

Estonian cableco Starman says it will be upgrading its DOCSIS 3.0 networks to fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology rather than DOCSIS 3.1, combining this with a 10G Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) network supplied by Nokia under a contract signed in June last year. UBB2020 reports that Starman is looking to offer 1Gbps services to all its customers in the short term, with 10Gbps speeds available when required. In December 2016 it was announced that Finnish telco Elisa, operator of Estonia’s second largest mobile network, was to acquire 100% of Starman for EUR151 million (USD162 million).
