Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 15:57 CET | News

Italian regional operator Siportal has reached an agreement with telecommunications infrastructure provider Retelit and Huawei to roll out a fibre-optic network aimed at businesses and residents alike in Sardinia and Sicily. Siportal said its Si-Fibra project has developed an FTTH X-Gpon network using the technologies of its partners Huawei and the Retelit Group, including the latter's PA Evolution subsidiary, and it expects to launch services later this year. 

The ISP also announced plans to invest a total of EUR 16 million over the 2020-2024 period to bring fibre to around 100,000 premises, above all in underserved grey areas in eastern Sicily and western Sardinia.
