Fastweb neutral on Telecom Italia network spin-off

Tuesday 24 September 2013 | 15:22 CET | News
Fastweb is neutral about the issue of separating Telecom Italia's fixed line network and is going ahead with its own grid, according to the CEO of the Italian broadband operator. Speaking during a conference organised by Icom, Alberto Calcagno stressed that there will always be an alternative network "and it will be ours". He pointed out that Fastweb competes in infrastructure through quality, adding that the intention is to provide 20 percent of the Italian population with a connection at up to 100 Mbps by 2014.
