Danish utility building FTTH network to serve 50,000 homes

Danish utility building FTTH network to serve 50,000 homes
North-West Sealand Energy Supply Company (NVE A.m.b.a.) is a cooperative serving 117,000 customers in a county-sized area on the island of Sealand. They are building an extensive FTTH network.

Their web site says they're building the network using OPGW (optical groundwire) -- normally that's only used on high voltage transmission lines due to cost. Utilities in the U.S. more often use ADSS (all-dielectric self-supporting) fiber cable on aerial runs and standard loose tube cable on buried runs.

A little more information can be gleaned from two vendors' press releases:

Kreatel press release including contact name.
