France Telecom to Fiber Slovakia

France Telecom's Orange will spend 32 million euros to bring FTTH to 200 thousand homes in 10 cities in Slovakia by the end of 2007. Orange has government approval and has signed agreements with landlords.

It appears that this is an MDU fiber to the building deployment since the cost per home passed is about 160 euros. This is consistent with MDU fiber costs that City Telecom has experienced in Hong Kong. It appears that IPTV will be an important application for this new network.
