Sky Italia inks wholesale broadband access deal with Fastweb

Tuesday 17 December 2019 | 09:21 CET | News
Satellite broadcaster Sky Italia has reached a new wholesale access agreement ahead of its imminent entry into the local fixed broadband market, reports Il Sole 24 Ore. After signing a long-term agreement to use Open Fiber's networks, the pay-TV company will also be accessing Fastweb's infrastructure for the early 2020 launch of its broadband service. "We will also be Sky's industrial partner. We have always sold our services to those who request them and Sky is no exception," said Fastweb CEO Alberto Calcagno at the recent inauguration of the operator's new Milan HQ.
