Open Fiber and Viking team up to reach Italian digital divide areas

Tuesday 16 February 2021 | 09:26 CET | News
Open Fiber has signed another agreement to bring high-speed broadband to Italy's most underserved areas, this time with corporate and wholesale provider Viking. Under the deal, Viking's proprietary backbone consisting of a triple meshed ring with PoPs distributed in all Italian regions will be combined with Open Fiber's wholesale FTTH network to reach digital divide zones that still lack adequate internet access. The aim is to help Open Fiber fulfil the plan announced in recent weeks to connect around 200 Italian localities in the country's remotest regions.
