Italian operators Fastweb and Linkem have announced a deal to deploy their respective '5G' Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) networks in up to 8 million homes in small and medium-sized towns by 2023. The long-term agreement will see the partners accelerate the rollout of "fibre-like" FWA networks offering speeds of up to 1Gbps and provide reciprocal wholesale services in the so-called 'grey areas' that make up 30 percent of Italy's population.
