STC has reported an increase in subscription for its managed IPTV service ‘InVision’. The operator’s service has seen more than 190% increase in 2012 according to reports.

STC was estimated to reach 35,000 IPTV subscribers by July 2012, and 70,000 by the end of 2012. Estimatest put the operator in the range of 200,000 – 300,000 customers by 2015.

The telco says that its strong IPTV growth is a result of continuous enhancement to its FTTH infrastructure, which span more than 500,000 Saudi homes, with 100,000 of these customers subscribing to services delivered by FTTH.

It plans on installing 300,000km of optical fibre cabling by 2014, which will cover more than 1.5mn homes with FTTH.
