Italtel, Open Fiber extend national broadband contracts

Monday 7 May 2018 | 11:50 CET | News
Italian telecommunications network specialist Italtel, now 81 percent owned by Exprivia, has announced an extension to the contracts signed back in 2016 with Open Fiber to design the network corresponding to the national high-speed broadband service rolled out in digital divide areas throughout the country. The contracts, potentially worth over EUR 200 million, require Italtel to design the Fibre To The Home (FTTH) access infrastructure, the Fixed Wireless Access network (FWA) and the Points of Presence (PoPs) for the first two government tenders awarded to Open Fiber last year.
