Thursday 11 January 2018 | 10:29 CET | News
Italy's Open Fiber and regional energy and water utility Acea have finalised their deal to roll out fibre-optic cables in Rome, reports La Repubblica. The companies reached a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) last August and have now struck a definitive agreement to bring 1 Gbps FTTH services to 1.2 million of the capital's homes using Acea's infrastructure. Open Fiber is set to invest some EUR 400 million in the project compared to Acea's EUR 200 million, while as many as 1,500 jobs could be created over the four to five-year duration of the work, said the report.
