Italy's Open Fiber connects first digital divide towns to network

Tuesday 18 December 2018 | 10:01 CET | News
The Open Fiber wholesale-only venture of Italian utility Enel and state lender CDP said full FTTH services are now available in the first two digital divide localities in the country ahead of the large-scale commercialisation of the network. Customers in Anguillara Sabazia (Rome) and San Giovanni La Punta (Catania) can now connect to the FTTH network at speeds of up to 1Gbps via local operator partners Unidata and Mandarin respectively, said Open Fiber, which is also testing the service in Fino Mornasco (Como) and Campagnano di Roma (Rome).
