We hope that by mid-2025 we will be able to implement the entire plan for 2021-2025. We carry out a significant part of our investments on the so-called white and gray NGA areas, i.e. where there is no infrastructure yet that would guarantee Internet access with a capacity of at least 100 Mb/s. Last year, our investments reached PLN 223,000. households in such locations.

She added that the company is already finalizing contracts with suppliers for the implementation of entire investments by 2025.

Our network is used and provides services thanks to it not only by the largest Polish telecommunications operators such as: Inea, Netia, Orange, Play, Plus, T-Mobile and Vectra, but also by numerous local suppliers. For over 2 years of operation, we have developed the highest service standards. We have also developed our service portfolio and processes in line with market expectations,” added Russyan.
