Cable Bahamas targets 33,00 FTTH passings on New Providence in 1Q23

16 Dec 2022

Cable Bahamas is targeting 33,000 southern New Providence homes for connection to its new fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network starting in the first quarter of 2023, after overcoming supply chain challenges that delayed the rollout. The cableco has committed BSD85 million (USD85 million) in CAPEX to cover the deployment.

CEO Franklyn Butler commented: ‘We remain relentless in our pursuit of improving our levels of customer service and quality of network … We have now deployed our initial testing of our Nokia 10Gbps GPON service here in New Providence and had expected to have made greater progress with this roll out during financial year 2022. However, due to supply chain challenges we experienced significant delays in receiving equipment to roll out this network.’

New Providence is the most populous island in the Bahamas, containing more than 70% of the total population.
