Sky mulls broadband launch in Italy with Open Fiber - report

Friday 4 August 2017 | 08:36 CET | News
Sky is considering entering the broadband market in Italy, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. The pay-TV company is in talks to partner with wholesale network operator Open Fiber for the service. A deal may be reached in October and Sky could start the new offer, similar to what the broadcaster has in the UK, as early as the first quarter of next year, the report said. Both companies declined to comment.
