“Alongside Triesen and Vaduz, Mauren is one of the first municipalities to be fully equipped with glass fibre,” Gerald Marxer, chairman of the management team of LKW, said in a statement. The work is already underway.
According to LKW, all distribution sites are now equipped with glass fibre, and the next step is to connect the densely populated areas. Affected homeowners will be informed by LKW, but those interested can also check their connection date on the LKW website.
LKW is investing CHF 32 million in the expansion of glass fibre cables across Liechtenstein. The company is covering the costs for laying the glass fibre connections up to the house junction box. Any costs inside the house for replacing copper cables with glass fibre ones must be borne by the homeowner.
But most homeowners will have little say in this because LKW plans to cease operating the old copper network one year after the connection to the new glass fibre network. Mauren and Eschen are the only two municipalities with the alternative offer of TV-Com. Households switching to glass fibre must also conclude a new contract with a corresponding Liechtenstein telecommunications service provider.
