Andorra Communications
 
 
 

General

In Andorra, mobile and fixed telephony and internet services are operated exclusively by the Andorran national telecommunications company, SOM (formerly STA). The same company also manages the technical infrastructure for national broadcasting of digital television and radio.

There is only one Andorran television station, Ràdio i Televisió d'Andorra (RTVA). Radio Nacional d’Andorra operates two radio stations, Radio Andorra and Andorra Música.

Internet access is available only through the national telephone company, SOM (formerly STA). Access was first provided in the 1990s by dial-up, but this has since been mostly replaced throughout the country by ADSL at a fixed speed of 2 Mbps. By the end of 2010, it is planned that every home in the country will have Fibre-Optic to the Home (FTTH) for internet access at a minimum speed of 100 Mbps.
