All Luxembourg households will have access at speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s by 2015.
Following authorisation from the authorities, P&TLuxembourg is very pleased to announce that Ultra High Speed internet access will be available in the Grand Duchy in September 2011!
The architecture and the offer proposed by P&TLuxembourg are very innovative, and beneficial to end clients. The offer contributes greatly to increasing the attractiveness of Luxembourg and to fully moving into the era of the knowledge-based economy.
For some years now, P&TLuxembourg has been actively preparing to install fibre optics throughout the country. Many districts are thus already connected and prepared for the commercial launch. The commercial name for the Ultra High Speed connection will be "LuxFibre". It will give Luxembourg households internet access at record speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s for both downloading and sending information, which is much faster than current residential connections.
When the offer is launched in September 2011, around 85% of households will be able to connect at speeds of up to 30 Mbit/s and around 25% for speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s.
Under the government's strategic plan for Ultra High Speed networks, all Luxembourg households will have access at speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s by 2015. P&TLuxembourg currently has 550 persons working to achieve this aim. To install fibre optics throughout the country, P&TLuxembourg will have invested over half a billion euros in total.
