Jazztel projects growth after fiber optic investment

Spanish broadband provider Jazztel projected its revenue would jump to up to 1.6 billion by 2017, from 909 million last year, after a major investment in a fiber optic network and a new focus on mobile telephone clients.

In a strategic plan presented on Thursday the company said net profit would jump to between 180 million and 220 million euros in 5 years, from 62 million last year.

This news coincided with an announcement that France's Orange Telecoms and Vodafone Espana are to unite to invest 1 Billion to bring fibreoptic technology to an estimated 6 Million homes (3 Million being accessed by each provider) in around 50 cities across Spain.

Both projects represent a serious challenge to the former monopoly controlled by Telefonica, who currently provide a fibreoptic technology network to an estimated 2.2 Million homes.
