The Torch Dubai Marina, the current high-rise residential building in the world (surpassing Q1 in Gold Coast, Australia), was connected within an impressive span of 135 hours only. The tower, which boasts 84 floors (above ground) and 687 apartments, stands tall at an incredible 345metres (1132feet) in height, which utilised 1,346 metres of optical fibre cables.
The multi-storey building, that is covered with du’s enhanced home services portfolio comprising of fixed telephony; du TV; du TV+ and Internet, provides residents with seamless connectivity and capabilities for an enhanced user experience. This move reiterates du’s stance in expanding its network across major landmarks in the UAE. As a result, The Torch residents and their visitors will benefit from du’s pioneering fibre-to-the-home technology.
“We are proud to connect another UAE landmark with our highly advanced fibre network. This iconic achievement is yet another impressive accolade added to our incredible portfolio. Implementing The Torch Dubai Marina with our services is yet another significant accomplishment for us. Now, people who live in or visit the building will enjoy our superior and seamless network connectivity in every capacity available,” said Hatem Bamatraf, SVP Network Development, du.
