Corning to supply STC with FTTH solutions

5 Feb 2018

Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has awarded a contract to US-based Corning Optical Communications to supply it with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) solutions. The arrangement builds on the existing strategic relationship between STC and Corning, with the latter having already supplied more than 1.5 million kilometres of optical fibre to STC’s domestic network. STC’s COO Nasser Sulaiman Al-Nasser said: ‘STC is building the largest fibre network in the history of the Kingdom. I am delighted to see us develop such an initiative with Corning, which will help meeting STC’s strategic goals for digital services, and will align with the objectives of the National Transformation Programme (NTP 2020) and Vision 2030.’
