Fiber from the sewer in Castelló

Castelló announced a couple of days ago that they will start to deploy fibre infrastructure using the sewers. The first phase of the project aims to deploy 18k of fibre with a cost of around 1M EUR.

Citynet will build the network, which will mainly be operated on dark-fibre rental basis and I presume that initially will be used for the interconnection of municipal buildings and corporate use.

Castelló is the capital city of the province of Castelló, in the Valencian Community.

  1. Interesting, for sure Citynet deploys metro-rings, for example, like Cablerunner. They do mention “access to buildings” from their metro-rings, meaning fiber-to-the-cabinet?

    1. I guess that they want to deploy a metro infrastructure to rent it to other operators and that they deploy the last segments. I can not see a fiber to the cabinet deployment using sewers because this would mean installing the cabinets at the street (big and ugly) or underground (difficult to accommodate). They may go for fiber-to-the-building, though.
      For the municipal buildings, I guess they will deploy to each building.
