EOLO, RaiWay to bring broadband to Italian rural areas

Tuesday 2 August 2016 | 15:08 CET | News
Italian tower operator RaiWay and ultra-broadband wireless provider EOLO have announced a six-year partnership to bring broadband connectivity to underserved areas throughout the country. Under the terms of the deal, EOLO will use RaiWay's sites to deliver 30 Mbps internet services to digital divide areas that have been unable to attract private investment (known as clusters C and D). The partners said the agreement will serve to give new impetus to the rollout of Eolo's network and the development of ultra-broadband services throughout Italy.
