Telecom Italia to begin copper switch-off in Trento

Monday 3 May 2021 | 14:36 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) said it has reached a deal with provincial and municipal authorities in the northern city of Trento to begin a process that will see the operator switch off its legacy copper network throughout Italy. Trento's Mattarello exchange is the first in the country to be entirely cabled with Fibre To the Home (FTTH) technology, allowing all local customers, including those of other operators, to migrate to the new network via connections offering download speeds of up to 1Gbps, said TIM.
