Deployment of high speed broadband to Andorra’s

Project name: Deployment of high speed broadband to Andorra’s 75,000 population

Location: Principality of Andorra

Company/client: Andorra Telecom

Andorra Telecom demonstrated what can be achieved in a short time with a strong vision and right level of commitment.

By using Tratos’ optical fibre riser cable solution, Andorra Telecom, a full-service network operator, saw the financial benefit of delivering an improved service to customers through the adoption of Fibre To The Home (FTTH).  The company’s aim was to get rid of its legacy copper network.

The company committed to providing internet access over optical fibre as a universal service to all final users in any populated spot in any geographic location in Andorra at a reasonable basic price.

Recognising that it would enable the company to move from being a traditional telecoms operator to a much more service focused business, Andorra Telecom initiated a pilot programme to test the process and technology.

Tratos’ FTTH optical cables are specially designed for use inside buildings to connect individual properties. The FTTH cables can run vertically from the bottom to the top of a building, and one or more of the cables in the bundle can be branched off at any point and connected to the end user. A reduced amount of connectivity points (splices, connectors) reduces the installation time, minimising disruption for residents.

With the pilot programming proving a success, FTTH deployment was completed by 2010 with a return on investment expected within seven years.

Consumer response to FTTH was very strong making the ambition realistic. It has also become strategically advantageous for companies to relocate to Andorra.
