The optical fiber FTTH
The optical fiber FTTH is the technology that allows households and businesses to be connected to the internet and the world with a very fast speed and efficient transmission. Even today, the percentage of people who enjoy this technology is very small and is mostly limited to big cities.
When Telefonica company chairman was asked about its investments in optical fiber he said that "There are mayors asking me about optical fiber in his towns but Telefonica is not an NGO", and adding that "in Spain people requires having broadband in towns where there is not yet water".
