Copper to Fiber Migration ongoing countrywide
In recent years, Ntc has been actively replacing old-generation copper lines with fiber networks. The telecom market is competitive and to stay relevant, the country’s largest operator is also adopting the latest technologies to provide reliable services.
Copper lines are traditional and are not capable of providing reliable services in today’s times. Fiber optics are more versatile, faster, and more durable. Plus, they are also less susceptible to environmental hazards. Further, the company can leverage the optics to provide voice, FTTH internet, and NT TV services with a single cable to its customers. This is why, the telco is rapidly making the switch to fiber networks across the country. Now you can also order an Ntc fiber connection with a phone call.
Ntc has also requested customers to migrate to the fiber network to reap the benefits of a much faster and more capable technology.
