Euroseek Access and SVEBO sign contract on broadband to Avesta

Euroseek Access and SVEBO sign contract on broadband to Avesta The Internet service Euroseek has signed a contract with SVEBO to provide 728 apartments in Övre Dalälvens Fastighets AB in Avesta, Sweden, access to high-speed Internet. Euroseek Access will use a combination of fibre, copper wire, XDSL technology, and finally the internal cable TV network to reach the apartments. "Our concept is to use the technology that does the job best on the basis of customer prerequisites, geographical location and preferences," explains Catherine Sahlgren, CEO of Euroseek. Euroseek Access co-operates with Ericsson Multilet, which enables users to gain access to the Internet through their cable TV sockets. "Multilet is established as a standard for broadband installation throughout the country," says Mikael Berglund, Marketing Manager at Ericsson Multilet. "With Multilet from Ericsson we can implement quick installations without laying down new networks," says Catherine Sahlgren, CEO of Euroseek. "For us as a housing corporation, broadband technology implies a reduction of people's dependency on the "external" office, and that we are seeing completely new groups of customers in our accommodation," says Lars Lindén, Real Estate Manager at SVEBO. Our users get up to 512 kbit per second in fast fixed Internet connection.
