Italian operators Fastweb and Linkem said they have agreed to extend an existing cooperation deal to deploy their respective 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) networks in low-density population areas in Italy. The companies intend to cover 4 million households in so-called "white areas" in addition to the 8 million addresses in grey areas announced in December 2019, equivalent to an extra 15 percent of Italy's population.
