OPT-NC fibre broadband subscriptions reach 35,000

1 Jul 2022

Office des Postes et Telecommunications de Nouvelle-Caledonie (OPT-NC), New Caledonia’s state-run national PTO, has revealed that is has connected a total of 35,000 customers to its fibre-optic network, representing around half of its total fixed broadband subscription base. Rollout of the network began in 2015 with the aim of replacing its copper infrastructure with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) nationwide between 2025 and 2027. Updating on its rollout progress, the fibre-optic network deployment is said to be around 60% complete, with services available in twelve municipalities, namely Noumea, Dumbea, Mont-Dore, Paita, La Foa, Bourail, Kone, Koumac, Poindimie, Lifou, Boulouparis and Pouembout. The next municipalities to benefit from fibre will be Poya (Nepoui area) and Moindou by the end of 2022, with the total number of subscriptions expected to rise to 40,000 by that date.
