Baltcom Fiber doubles capacity to 5 Gbps

Baltcom Fiber, the unit of the Baltcom electronic services group that owns a subsea optical link from Latvia to Sweden, has doubled the capacity of the cable to 5 Gigabits per second (Gbps) from 2.5 Gbps hitherto.
The reason is is an increasd demand for capacity from internet service providers carrying a higher volume of multimedia traffic. Power utility Latvenergo, which is building out a couple of pilot fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) projects in Riga, is one of Baltcom Fiber's customers. They call it, amusingly, "Optics up to Your House" :).
