Italian broadband provider Metroweb is finalising a plan to invest EUR 4-5 billion to roll out a fibre optic network across the country, according to Vodafone Italia CEO Aldo Bisio. "Talks to define the business plan of Metroweb Sviluppo are almost finished and envisage EUR 4-5 billion of investments to build a network in line with the government's indications," said Bisio said on the sidelines of an event, according to Reuters. However, Bisio added that certain governance and financial issues still need to be ironed out before the plan can be implemented.
