The fiber optic roll-out, which started in 2015, is a major and structural challenge for New Caledonia. The objective remains the same: to have the OPT-NC’s 80 000 customers connected to the fiber optic network by 2025.
High-speed wired internet aims to provide everyone with the same level of service (performance, availability, and price), by replacing ADSL technology (copper fiber-based whose performance is limited) with fiber optic to facilitate the emergence of new services associated with the digital economy.
Fiber Optic Accessible to All in 2025
The FTTH (Fiber to the Home) Program is a major project which consists in shifting customers from the copper wired network to the fiber optic wired network according to a ten year calendar.
This technical solution enables the offering of high-speed services for all New Caledonians, without geographical discrimination.
Fiber Optic technology guarantees digital equality for all with fiber optic reference speeds currently ranging from30 Mb/s and 100 MB/s.
