Hello there,

I have a doubt regarding to internet services. For those who live at downtown Boquete, is there anybody who already has Fiber to the Home (FTTH)?

From what I've heard, Cable & Wireless Panama started deploying their fiber-to-the-home services to boquete residents firstly.

I wanted to know how good or bad it is; its ping, latency, speed, etc. Which type of PON devices are they providing and if the service is NATted or bridged (direct Public IP).

Any information will be appreciated.

Regards

I was not aware that any ISP was providing FTTH in our area. Was hoping someone would respond, but not yet.

Have you learned anything more since posting?

I suspect your use of “PON” terminology went over the heads of just about everyone. Guess you might be a geek. Not trying to disparage, just commenting.

Fiber Optic is now in the underground duct work in Boquete Country Club. I don't know if the houses are connected yet or not. They ran the fiber down on the road headed to Palmira a month ago. I don't know how far they went towards Palmira. I have Netflix and 60 mg internet without issues. If you noticed they were running new fiber up and down the main road from David to Boquete for months. Maybe they will connect soon and provide more band width, speed and capacity. I recieved maintenance emails from Cabla Onda everytime the Fiber people worked on the highway laying the fiber. I do not believe it is functional yet. The reason; I do NOT see any difference in my internet or cable TV.

Cable and Wireless installed Fibre Optic cable into my home about 2 weeks ago.

So far, so good. Higher speeds, no interruptions. Reduced my monthly internet costs slightly and added a few features.

* Heads up.

This may not be the service for U.S. citizens who are aligned and in agreement with the anti-HUAWEI policies of the U.S. governmen.  The hardware is all HAUWEI.
