The communications company Movistar (Telefonica) has begun the installation of the fibre optic network which will bring high speed internet connectivity to domestic users in Sabinillas.
The Mayor of Manilva, Diego José Jiménez, and the councillor for infrastructure and works, Antonio Barragán, recently met with technicians from Movistar to discuss the project and the impact local users. The main advantage is that this technology will enable download speeds of up to 300 meg and upload speeds of up to 30 meg, and will also allow local business to access services on ‘the cloud’ in a more speedy and efficient way.
Installation work is already underway in Sabinillas and requires the replacement of the current network of copper wires with fibre optic cable in every street and building.
Manilva Town and the urbanisations present a more difficult task and works there will begin in early 2016, and represents a considerable investment on the part of the operator.
