Open Fiber partners with Telespazio to reach digital divide areas

Thursday 28 January 2021 | 15:21 CET | News
Open Fiber has signed an agreement with satellite services operator Telespazio to bring high-speed broadband to Italy's remotest regions. The deal with Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67 percent) and Thales (33 percent), will enable Open Fiber to use satellite broadband (HTS) technology to reach so-called "very white" areas with no internet access whatsoever that cannot be reached by FTTH or even Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) infrastructure, said the wholesale operator.
