Eurovision’s new fiber network should not unduly affect its existing business with satellite operators. Indeed the introduction of the terrestrial technology will be one of the main challenges facing the company this year said Paolo Pusterla Eurovision’s head of strategy and business development.

To that end the fiber network is a key initiative for the organization. Pusterla calls this network a “substantial” undertaking for the company.
