Puglia first Italian region with 100% 'ultrabroadband' coverage - TIM

Wednesday 17 February 2021 | 12:06 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) said the southern Italian region of Puglia (Apulia) is the first in the country to have full access to "ultrabroadband" fixed line speeds via the operator's fibre-based, satellite and fixed wireless access (FWA) infrastructure. In a statement, TIM said it had fully closed the digital divide in Puglia after completing its rollout of FTTx networks offering speeds of up to 1 Gbps (FTTH) and 200 Mbps (FTTC) in 99.4 percent of the region's households, with the remaining 0.6 percent covered by satellite and FWA connections.
