P&TLuxembourg to Launch LuxFibre Service in September

  • FTTH
LUXEMBOURG - P&TLuxembourg, the incumbent operator in the grand duchy of Luxembourg, announced that LuxFibre, its ultra-high-speed Internet service, will be available in September 2011. P&TLuxembourg has been laying fiber optic cable for several years, and by the time service is launched, about 85 percent of households will be able to connect at speeds of up to 30 Mbps and 25 percent will be able to connect at symmetrical speeds of up to 100 Mbps.

Under the government's strategic plan, all Luxembourg households will have access at speeds of up to 100 Mbps by 2015 - a project that will cost more than half a billion euros altogether. The plan also requires P&TLuxembourg to open its network to other service providers on a wholesale basis.

In addition to high-speed Internet access, LuxFibre will enable HDTV for video subscribers and the possibility of other new applications.

Jean-Marie Spaus, assistant managing director of the telecommunications department at P&TLuxembourg, says, “The future is fiber optics. In today's world, the performance of infrastructures and telecommunications is undoubtedly a decisive factor in determining the attractivity of Luxembourg and the competitiveness of all its companies and clients. Luxembourg clients are at the heart of a social and service network. We offer them the best networks at competitive rates. It's a great leap forward for the country, and we are very pleased that P&TLuxembourg is able to contribute.”
