Akado Ethernet broadband subs base rises

Russian service provider Akado has reported that the number of households receiving broadband internet via its Ethernet network in the region around Moscow reached 130,000 at the end of last year.

The network saw 24,200 additions in the second half of last year, up from 14,100 in the first half. Akado acquired a number of smaller operators delivering internet services via Ethernet in 2006-07 and began the process of upgrading the networks in the spring of last year. Akado principally offers broadband over its own HFC cable network.
