Iliad's infrastructure expansion held back by Italian regulatory obstacles – CEO

Thursday 4 July 2019 | 09:55 CET | News
Iliad Italia's strategy to expand its infrastructure network with a view to becoming an independent operator in the medium term is being hampered by the country's regulatory red tape, according to the company's CEO Benedetto Levi. "Our number one priority is the development of our own infrastructure… and we are aiming to reach 3,500 installed sites by the end of 2019," said Levi in a hearing before the Italian Senate's public works committee, according to Corriere delle Comunicazioni.
