Spanish FTTH roll-out begins following tri-partate agreement

Vodafone and Orange are to bring fibre to the home (FTTH) to some 800,000 households in 12 Spanish cities, following an agreement with the local telecoms operator Telefonica.

The three companies set up a network-sharing agreement in July, allowing Vodafone and Orange to connect their horizontal networks to Telefonica's installations within buildings. The FTTH networks will be connected in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Malaga, Valencia, Alicante, Zaragoza, Cordoba, Valladolid, Alcorcon, Badalona and Hospitalet de Llobregat.

Vodafone and Orange say this this just the first tranche in a billion-euro development that will see six million households in 50 cities connected by 2017.
