Orange, Poland’s leading operator with 28% market share and over 13.7 million active customers, is rapidly rolling out its Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) service and has selected ADTRAN’s 2nd Generation Gfast fiber extension solutions to further accelerate its delivery of high-quality, high-capacity broadband services to more homes and businesses.
“Orange Polska’s ambition is to reach several thousand additional customers per year with faster broadband services, which we believe will improve their quality of life and allow more people to benefit from the Gigabit Society,” said Michal Wal, Director, Fixed Access Networks at Orange Polska. “ADTRAN was able to deliver the right solution, at scale, that will enable us to best serve our customers and achieve our network service goals today and into the future.”
As part of its FTTH rollout, ADTRAN’s solutions deliver the flexible service capabilities that will allow Orange Polska to meet the individual demands of any residential or business customer. With ADTRAN bringing the broadest Gfast technology portfolio, this accelerates the availability of symmetric gigabit service rates in Fiber-to-the-Building applications. Where fiber-extension solutions are needed, it offers true seamless fiber extension options that can be deployed without requiring any costly and time-consuming IT adaptation of the existing GPON fiber networks, thus accelerating the availability of gigabit services while saving the service provider time and effort.
