Bulgaria’s EVO installing Fibre-to-the-Home
Bulgarian ISP EVO has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to provide gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology for its upgrade to Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) connections.
Under the three-year contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply the customer premises equipment (CPE) and the Optical Line Termination Unit in order to consolidate all traffic from the CPEs as well as services such as installation and maintenance over to EVO.
EVO plans to use the new higher-capacity FTTH network to deliver higher broadband bandwidth and high-quality data services such as IPTV to its subscribers.
Incumbent telco Vivacom (formerly known as BTC) confirmed at the end of last month that it is planning to invest €600m in rolling out a Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) network which will cover 1mn households by 2014.
