POST's "Réseau du futur": The Minister of the Economy visited a fiber optic network extension site in Dudelange - POSTGroup
As part of the development of POST's "Network of the Future", Serge Allegrezza, Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Claude Strasser, Managing Director of POST Luxembourg, welcomed Minister of the Economy Franz Fayot to Dudelange on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, for a visit to a fiber optic network extension worksite.
During this visit, POST Luxembourg presented the general structure of the FTTH (Fibre to the Home) optical fiber network, followed by a demonstration of the various technical stages. Franz Fayot witnessed the laying of a fiber optic cable by blowing, the making of the cable joint, and the connection of the end customer to the POST fiber optic network.
The digitalization of Luxembourg requires high-performance, scalable connectivity. To respond to this growth in data and increasing digital uses, POST is continuing to invest in the "Network of the Future" by increasing 4G network capacity, preparing for 5G and continuing to roll out fiber optics. With over 250 million invested in telecommunications networks in five years, POST is one of the leading players in the digitalization of the Grand Duchy. Since 2010, POST Luxembourg has laid over 19,500 km of fiber optic cable, with more than 1,285,000 km of optical fibers. Placed on the Equator, these fibers would circle the Earth 32 times.
Claude Strasser, Managing Director of POST Luxembourg, confirmed this commitment: "In order to accelerate the deployment of ultra high-speed broadband in general, and in rural areas in particular, POST Luxembourg has decided to increase its multi-year budget for investment in the telecommunications network by 50 million euros. Today, POST provides nearly 70% of the population with Internet access at speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s. By 2023, we're aiming for 75%.”
Minister of the Economy Franz Fayot welcomed POST's decision to increase its investments by 50 million euros: "I am delighted with the increase in the budget allocated to the development of the telecommunications network. The ongoing deployment of infrastructure and improved connectivity contribute to the development of Luxembourg's economy by accelerating the country's digitalization, and to its international positioning as a center of excellence in ICT".
