Sky Italia to launch fixed broadband offer 'by mid-2020' - CEO

Friday 14 February 2020 | 11:50 CET | News
Satellite broadcaster Sky Italia will finally be launching its fixed broadband offer "within the first 6 months of 2020", confirmed its CEO Maximo Ibarra in an interview with business daily Il Sole 24 Ore. Sky said it was planning to enter Italy's fixed broadband market last year after signing a long-term agreement to access Open Fiber's FTTH network. The pay-TV company will also be accessing Fastweb's FTTH, FTTC and fixed-wireless access (FWA) infrastructure to reach the parts of the country not yet covered by Open Fiber's networks.
