Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 15:22 CET | News
Italian wholesale Open Fiber said its partners Wind Tre and Vodafone have launched the first commercial fibre-optic offers in the Sicilian coastal city of Messina. The first 10,000 homes and businesses in the areas of Viale Giostra and Rione Taormina can already sign up to FTTH connections at speeds of up to 1Gbps with another 85,000 set to be connected in the coming months in a total investment of EUR 23 million. 

In March Open Fiber announced that it had reached the milestone of 5 million connected homes throughout Italy at the end of last year and confirmed plans to bring FTTH connections to around 19.5 million homes and businesses in 271 Italian cities and 7,000 smaller localities by 2022.
