SWEDEN SET $650m PLAN FOR NATIONAL FIBRE OPTIC ISDN TELEPHONE NETWORK

Fujitsu and LM Ericsson have beaten 13 other contenders to supply opto-electronic equipment to the Swedish PTT, Televerket, worth $6.5m to each company, as part of its project to implement a national fibre optic Integrated Services Digital Network. Televerket is investing an estimated $650m to replace its trunk network with 565Mbps fibre optic lines, which it hopes will be fully ISDN-compatible by 1993. Televerket claims that the cable cost of the new high-speed network will be only 25% of currently installed 140Mbps optical cable systems.
