Open Fiber to connect 171 Italian digital divide localities using FWA

Monday 12 October 2020 | 11:00 CET | News
The Open Fiber wholesale-only venture of utility Enel and state lender CDP intends to use FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) technology to connect at least 171 Italian localities in mountainous areas that currently lack any internet connection, reports Corriere della Sera. Under the extraordinary plan costing around EUR 5-10 million, the operator will use the hybrid system of fibre and wireless connections to offer high-speed connectivity at speeds of between 30 and 100 Mbps in what are defined as the "whitest areas" of the country.
