Fastweb unveils plan to bring fibre to 100 Italian cities

Friday 26 September 2014 | 16:30 CET | News
Italian broadband operator Fastweb has announced a new plan to expand its next-generation access network to over 100 Italian cities by the end of 2016. The new project comes two years after the operator initiated a EUR 400 million investment plan to bring fibre to 20 percent of Italian households and companies by the end of 2016. With the September 2012 initiative nearing completion, Fastweb has now pledged to bring ultrafast broadband to 27 percent of the population or 7.5 million households and businesses in over 100 cities by the end of 2016, some 2 million more than its original plan.
