Italy's Tiscali targets 1 mln customers by 2020 - CEO

Friday 20 January 2017 | 08:52 CET | News
Italian operator Tiscali is aiming to increase its customer base to 1 million by 2020, up from the current figure of around 700,000, after finalising its merger with WiMAX provider Aria, the company's CEO Riccardo Ruggiero told local daily Il Giornale. "After completing the debt restructuring, we are now building the new Tiscali and transforming Aria's network from WiMAX to LTE technology to reach digital divide areas," said Ruggiero. Aria's 40 MHz spectrum licence on the 3.5 GHz frequency covers the whole of Italy, allowing Tiscali to deploy it for LTE and eventually 5G use, added the CEO.
