Italian FTTH networks to reach a third of premises this year - study

Monday 30 March 2020 | 14:55 CET | News
Italy's FTTH footprint is set to rise from 23 percent of all premises in the country at the end of 2019 to around a third by the end of December 2020, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni, citing the latest data from EY. Measures imposed to boost take-up appear to be paying off after FTTH coverage rose from 18 percent to 23 percent in 2019, reaching a total of 6.8 million homes and businesses, above all due to the contribution of wholesale-only provider Open Fiber.
