Emilia-Romagna to connect over 1,000 schools to gigabit fibre

Monday 2 November 2020 | 11:27 CET | News
The northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna plans to connect 1,178 schools to fibre-optic networks by 2022 in a total investment of around EUR 24 million, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni. The project will be carried out by in-house company Lepida and is part of a plan to bring 1Gbps connections to all schools announced earlier this year by the Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) and state-owned infrastructure agency Infratel. In addition to the structural costs, the funds made available also cover connectivity costs for up to 5 years.
