Gabon Telecom has officially launched its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) networks in Libreville. The FTTH network, which supports download speeds of up to 50Mbps, is initially available in the following districts of the capital: Asecna, Sabliere, Tahiti, Narval, Kalikak and Batterie IV.

In FTTB-enabled locations, the final connection is delivered in-building via a VDSL copper tail, the telco notes. While no prices are quoted on the company website, Gabon Telecom notes that it charges XAF200,000 (USD335.7) for an FTTH router and XAF80,000 for a VDSL/FTTB router, whilst broadband users also get a fixed voice connection.
