Enel Open Fiber to bring FTTH to 80% of Genoa by 2020

Wednesday 2 November 2016 | 09:31 CET | News
Enel Open Fiber (EOF) and Genova Metroweb are set to announce plans to bring FTTH coverage to 80 percent of homes in the city of Genoa by 2020, reports La Repubblica. The rollout should begin at the start of 2017 and is part of EOF's plan to build a wholesale fibre-optic network open to all operators in 250 large Italian cities, taking advantage of the installation of around 30 million smart electric meters over the next four years. Genoa is already the second most cabled city in Italy after Milan, with 33,800 km of fibre-optic cables for a 233 km network, said the report.
