Monday 12 October 2015 | 09:58 CET | News
Telecom Italia has rolled out over 1.2 million km of fibre-optic cable in the first nine months of the year, according to chairman Giuseppe Recchi. "In 2015 we have been travelling at a speed of around 180 km an hour," said Recchi on the sidelines of a conference, adding that "in the past few months we are proceeding at record pace of 400,000 lines per month, a city the size of Turin." Telecom Italia's chairman also said fibre-optic coverage in Italy grew by 16 percent last year, compared to 6 percent in the rest of Europe.
