FINESTRAT HAS 45 KILOMETERS OF OPTIC FIBER TO IMPROVE THE INTERNET ACCESS FOR NEIGHBORS AND COMPANIES
THE FIRST PHASE OF CABLE INSTALATION IN THE BOULEVAR AND THE URBANIZATIONS OF BALCÓN DE FINESTRAT AND SIERRA CORTINA.
The optic fiber installation continues in a fast pace. Since last year´s june, over 45 kilometers of fibre has been installed in the comercial boulevar and the urbanizations of “Balcón de Finestrat” and “Sierra Cortina”. The optic fibre expansion goes on in a good pace, while the canalizations in the “Cala” and “Terra Marina” urbanizations are installed, where it is planned to wire another 6.000 meters of fiber. Finally the historic center fiber instalation is planned to start this next march.
The mayor, Juan Francisco Pérez, seems satisfied with the significant development of this technology and all the advantages that will provide for the citizens and companies which are domiciled in Finestrat. “Optic Fiber is a reality for Balcón de Finestrat and Sierra Cortina residential areas which has great demand of telephonic network and Internet access of all the neighbors that lives there and also their elementary school.” On the other hand, the fiber installed in the Boulevar will improve the coverage and commercial activities of the companies settled there, increasing the interest in Finestrat.”
This infrastructure did not entail any disbursement for the municipal arcs as it was agreed to install it with the company Cloud Telecom through certain underground pipelines of public lighting network of municipal ownership. “Therefore, explained the mayor, we have not had to carry out major works or generate discomfort to the neighbors and, most importantly, it has not cost us a euro. On the contrary, the company will pay an annual fee that will go to innovation and development to continue improving the service”.
Among the advantages of this technology is the high speed of data transmission, which results in faster Internet connection, greater broad band and the possibility of connecting more devices simultaneously. This technology also avoids electromagnetic interferences, that is to say, problems of lowering the speed, disconnections, crossed conversations by telephone, among others. In addition, the company that provides these services, Cloud Telecom has its main server in the Boulevard de Finestrat itself “which greatly improves the quality of Internet access,” said the manager, José María Llobregat. “Our priority is to cover as soon as possible the entire locality so that its neighbors have the best Internet service, from our own network, at affordable and very competitive costs.” In fact, fiber optic cabling continues at the moment in Cala de Finestrat and in the urbanization Terra Marina. “And within a month, the mayor concluded, they will begin to wire optical fiber in the historic center of Finestrat.”
