Swisscom has announced plans to use state-of-the-art technology to help speed up internet connections for people in an area of Switzerland.

Businesses and households in Yverdon-les-Bains will begin to get access to the new fibre-optic service from this autumn, with work set to be completed within the next few years.

The fibre-optic service, which has high bandwidth and involves laying four fibres per household and business, aims to satisfy the growing demand for high-speed internet access.

Officials in the area have welcomed the plans and the installation of the connections will proceed when Swisscom develops a co-ordinated approach following talks with property owners affected by the project.

Other telecom firms will also benefit from the plans as an agreement means operators not wishing to invest in the new infrastructure will still have access. That should mean consumers have a range of service providers to choose from as well when the network is completed.
