“The U.S. market is today Hexatronic’s largest market, and it is one of our three strategic growth markets. We are very proud to have become a strategic partner to Ting and support them in their ambitious build plans,” added Henrik Larsson Lyon, CEO of Hexatronic Group.

Lyon concluded, “With our proven FTTH solution that focuses on an efficient install and high quality, reinforced by our field support services and training, we are confident that we will bring value to the Ting FTTH build. We see this agreement as further proof of our strategy to bring value to our customers by providing the lowest total cost of ownership with our solutions and services. We will continue to invest in the U.S. market to support Ting and other customers.”
