Telecom operator Telefónica has announced that it will triple the connection speed for all its internet customers before the summer.
The communications provider will also switch all its ADSL clients to its new fiber-optic network as soon as the service is available in their location at no extra charge, sources familiar with the situation told EL PAÍS.
The unprecedented move rests on the fact that Telefónica knows its customers require a quality broadband connection in order to subscribe to its new services, such as streaming video or pay TV.
The company’s fiber-optic network currently serves 10.3 million homes, and this year is expected to reach a further 3.6 million households.
