The Open Fiber wholesale-only operator of Italian utility giant Enel and state lender CDP has announced the renewal of an agreement with Venice council to bring fibre-optic services at speeds of up to 1Gbps to 120,000 premises in the historic city by June 2020. The EUR 40 million plan to roll out 2,000 km of cable will use existing overhead and underground networks for 90 percent of the project, with low-impact digging techniques used for the remainder of the cabling in neighbourhoods located in the heart of the Venice lagoon.
