Issue 383: Algeria Telecom becomes first operator to pioneer fibre to the home strategy

In your leading article in issue 383 , an error was made about the equipment supplier.

Algérie telecom signed on November 3, 2007 a partnership contract with SPEC-COM Canada for the deployment of the FTTH network in Algeria.

Currently the only partner Algérie Telecom has for the deployment of the FTTH is SPEC-COM Canada which has installed, to date, 2000 accesses in Oran which will soon be marketed.

SPEC-COM will be present also in Algiers, Oran, Constantine, Annaba, Setif and Hassi Méssaoud

Sagem never was a partner of Algérie Telecom for the FTTH and never deployed the FTTH in Algeria.
