In Poland, Orange extends its fiber-optic network
Another 10 Polish cities will be able to benefit from Orange's FTTH network very soon: Bielsko-Biala, Czestochowa, Gdynia, Gorzow Wielkopolski, Kielce, Olsztyn, Radom, Rzeszow, Toruń and Włocławek.
Orange is looking to extend its fiber network and ensure consistent coverage throughout the country. Up until now, only 16 cities were connected, including Warsaw, Krakow, Katowice, Lodz, Bydgoszcz and Elblag, with services available for 820,000 homes. By 2018, following major investments, the aim is to reach 3,500,000 homes.
Orange Polska has launched a dedicated website, enabling residents in the areas concerned to find out more about the offers available and discover immediately if they are eligible.
At home or at the office, end-to-end fiber optic is aligned with the main challenges in today's digital world. It offers upload and download speeds that have never been reached before.
In addition to offering an unrivalled experience for Orange customers, fiber will have a positive impact on the country's economy, helping drive future growth in production revenues, consumption and employment, and - over the longer term – actively contributing to Poland's appeal.
Developing networks for today and tomorrow
Orange has the leading network in Poland. In addition to building its fiber network, it is rapidly developing its 4G network, which already covers 90% of the population, with this figure to reach 98% by the end of the year. Orange also holds the mobile internet transmission speed record. Working with the equipment manufacturer Huawei, Orange has successfully trialed data transmission speeds of 1 Gbps, thanks to 4G bandwidth aggregation: a first step towards 5G networks in Poland.
