Numericable has announced it has further extended its fibre-optic network to the regions of Grenoble, Nimes and Perpignan. The French cablenet began the deployment of the technology in 2005 and has subsequently connected almost two million households.
Since September 2007 Numericable has been offering its subscribers speeds of 100 Mbps alongside HD services and video on demand. The operator adopted the DOCSIS 3.0 standard in 2006, the first in the world to do so.
As Broadband TV News reported earlier this week, three more cities (Béthune, Reims and Nancy) have been connected to the network and it is anticipated a further 70 will be added over the next three months.
