Fibwi revolutionises connectivity in the Balearic Islands with 10-gigabit speed

Fibwi has become the first operator in the Balearic Islands to offer XGS-PON technology and services for its customers, with symmetrical speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

Fibwi, the largest telecoms company in the Balearic Islands, has marked a milestone in the history of connectivity on the islands by launching its new 10 Gbps rate in collaboration with NuCom Powered by Iskratel. This innovative offering enabled by advanced XGS-PON technology makes Fibwi the regional speed leader, pioneering commercially available symmetrical data rates up to 10 Gbps.

The implementation of this cutting-edge project led by NuCom Powered by Iskratel represents a significant step forward in the deployment of fibre optics in the Balearic Islands, and marks a new chapter in high-speed connectivity. This strategic collaboration guarantees the best internet experience not only for residents of large cities, but also for those in less populated rural areas.

Francisco Alcalde, the founder and CEO of Fibwi, expressed his pride: “We are truly excited to be the first in the Balearic Islands to offer internet connectivity with speeds of 10 Gbps. With this milestone, Fibwi consolidates its position as the speed leader providing unparalleled internet experience in urban areas and inland villages alike.”

Fibwi’s collaboration with NuCom Powered by Iskratel has been essential to the success of this project. Pepe Seger, head of product management at NuCom Powered by Iskratel, commented: “We are delighted to see the positively impact of our solution to Fibwi. This achievement reaffirms our commitment to offer European solutions that make a difference in the current technological and geopolitical landscape.”

In an unprecedented migration process, Fibwi and NuCom Powered by Iskratel have successfully integrated new 10-gigabit fibre-access solutions into existing network infrastructure, causing no service interruptions during the transition. The ensured service continuity reaffirms the quality of service that Fibwi delivers to its customers.

The 10-gigabit data rate promises to transform the experience of users and families, and is ideal for those that require ultra-fast connectivity for work, study or entertainment. It significantly improves web browsing, streaming and gaming, and is an excellent choice for households with multiple internet users.
