America Movil (AM)-backed Claro Brasil expects to pass 1.5 million residences with its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network by the end of 2019, senior executives have confirmed. In a conference call with analysts to discuss the group’s second quarter earnings, Oscar Von Hauske Solis, AM’s Chief Fixed Line Operations Officer commented: ‘We know that our competitors are building fibre as well. So, it’s a very competitive environment, but we think we have the right infrastructure to be a good player in the market.’

Meanwhile, Mr Von Hauske Solis added that Mexican fixed line incumbent Telmex now passes ‘almost five million’ homes with FTTH infrastructure, while fibre-to-the-curb (also known as fibre-to-the-cabinet, FTTC) and VDSL used elsewhere within its network footprint.
