11 Dec 2018

Mexican cableco Izzi Telecom – which is majority owned by domestic media giant Grupo Televisa – has selected Furukawa Electric LatAm to replace part of its HFC cable network with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure. The two-year project – which will involve the deployment of around 8,000km worth of cable – will focus on Monterrey, the capital and largest city of the north-eastern state of Nuevo Leon. Following the completion of the project, the new FTTH network will pass around 1.6 million homes.

In total, Izzi Telecom provides broadband, pay-TV and VoIP services in 60 cities across 29 states over an HFC network, which spans 77,000km.
