After an initial commercial launch in Saragossa, Endesa, one of the largest private electrical companies in the world, and AUNA have now started the commercialization of their PLC services in Barcelona.
The deployment of the PLC network, made jointly with Fecsa-Endesa, started last December and covers, in this first phase, around 5,000 households.
As witnessed in Saragossa, the venture offers voice and broadband telecommunication services through low and medium voltage electricity network.
The commercial deployment in Zaragoza has confirmed not only the technical viability of the PLC technology, but also the commercial satisfaction by the users.
The commercial penetration in the deployment area has reached a 19% rate. Users mostly contracted simultaneously broadband Internet and telephony services.
Consequently, Endesa confirms its leadership in PLC technology putting the electricity network at the disposal of the telecommunications operators enabling the offering of internet and telephony services through a network that is alternative and complementary to the existing ones.
In this first phase of commercial launching, Endesa Net Factory will operate as access carrier under the C1 License and Auna will assume the commercialization of the services to the final client.
Again, as seen in Saragossa, the commercial offer designed by AUNA includes the telephony and Internet services with speeds of 128,300 and 600 Kbits in a very competitive conditions.
