Italy's Open Fiber launches Catania 1Gbps FTTH service

Friday 28 April 2017 | 09:32 CET | News
The Open Fiber wholesale-only venture of utility giant Enel has announced that the first commercial fibre-optic offers using its network have been launched in the Sicilian city of Catania. The company said the FTTH service is already being marketed via its agreements with Vodafone and Wind-Tre after it began rolling out the network at the end of last year, taking advantage of parent company Enel's installation of smart electric meters in the city. A total of 20,500 households have already been connected, with the figure set to rise to 115,000 by the end of 2018.
