Post Luxembourg, the country’s largest ISP by subscribers, has united with Finnish equipment vendor Nokia to bring faster broadband speeds to apartment buildings in Luxembourg. G.fast technology is being deployed, which boosts speeds on available copper infrastructure in buildings to deliver fibre-like speeds to apartment buildings, while enhancing users’ triple-play and HD video experience. Nokia’s G.fast solution uses built-in vectoring technology to reduce cross-talk interference that usually impacts data speeds on copper networks, enabling Post Luxembourg to continue to use its existing copper lines to bring faster broadband to customers.
Gaston Bohnenberger, Managing Director of Post Technologies said: ‘The G.fast technology today makes sense for us in buildings where it is difficult or impossible to modernise the internal cabling of the building. While Post Luxembourg’s main objective remains to bring the fibre all the way up to the customer’s apartment, G.fast will be used in buildings where rewiring is at present not possible. Through this investment, Post enables the customer to profit from higher speed offers as soon as the building is connected to the FTTH network.’
