Open Fiber offering discounts on FTTH activations during coronavirus crisis

Wednesday 25 March 2020 | 09:50 CET | News
The Open Fiber wholesale-only venture of Italian utility giant Enel and state lender CDP has started offering operator partners a number of promotions to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak in Italy, reports Radiocor. With a view to preventing network saturation and in order to support the migration from copper to more resilient fibre networks, the company has more than halved the one-off cost payable by operators to connect to its network from EUR 260 to EUR 110, plus a EUR 2 a month maintenance fee.
