The CEO of Italian utility giant Enel has confirmed that his company is due to meet representatives from broadband provider Metroweb over the next few days to discuss fibre-optic network deployment. Francesco Starace confirmed the forthcoming meeting at the sidelines of a conference in Milan, having earlier told Il Sole 24 Ore that Enel's last-mile infrastructure is available for use by any operator with a view to avoiding duplication of networks. Starace added that Enel has no intention of participating in the forthcoming tenders to roll out a national fibre-optic network.
