Andorra Telecom is the company that exclusively provides the universal public telecommunications service in the Principality of Andorra. Throughout our history we have been adapting the offer of services to the changes experienced by society and to the new needs in terms of connectivity. The main service lines are fixed and mobile telephony, Internet and data connection, as well as television via fibre optics.
In 2016, Andorra became one of the first countries to stop using copper technology and transfer all fixed telephony and internet access to fibre optics, a process that was divided into two phases. On 30 June, the central and most populated parishes, Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany, were shut down, while on 31 December it was extended to the rest of the territory.
In recent times, we have been immersed in a process of digitalisation, one of the main challenges facing the country.
The television via optical fibre service is structured through its own platform and a grid that brings together the major Spanish, French and international general channels, the entire Movistar range and the channels specialising in sports. At the same time, due to its public responsibility Andorra Telecom guarantees that digital terrestrial television (DTT) reaches all households.
The other major service we offer is the Internet. The commitment to broadband fibre optics as a universal service in 2008 made us an internationally pioneering country, an aspect later confirmed in 2014 with the shut-down of the copper cable network. Andorra Telecom maintains its commitment to constant innovation. In 2017 we took on the renovation of the entire fibre optic network throughout the country, which meant the total renovation of the ONTs, the devices that users have installed at home, and the OLTs, which provide service to multiple customers.
Traditional telecommunications services are complemented by other products that allow data storage in data centres, in the cloud, and in other innovative systems for managing fleets. We have also begun a process of economic diversification to open up to new activities and markets, either alone or with strategic alliances with other companies.
Mobile telephony has also followed a path of constant evolution from the incorporation of Mobiland GSM in 1995 to 4G technology at a speed of 150MBps, which currently covers the main inhabited areas of the country and much of the territory.
