Sky Italia, Open Fiber deal underlines business case for open fibre, Sky strategy

Wednesday 4 April 2018 | 11:43 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Sky Italia is planning to launch in the summer of 2019 services over the Open Fiber FTTH network being rolled out by utilities group Enel and the bank CDP. This is another example of support for FTTH, open networks and Sky's strategy of expanding distribution. It's unclear yet whether Sky plans a triple-play offer in addition to TV services, but it seems likely. At the same time, Sky announced a distribution agreement with Mediaset for access to the DTT platform.
