Telecom Italia to focus on fixed acceleration - chairman 

Tuesday 9 February 2016 | 09:05 CET | News
Telecom Italia is set to focus on fixed network acceleration in a new business plan to be presented next week, according to the company's chairman Giuseppe Recchi. "Our objective is to accelerate the development of the fixed network because mobile is already in step with other countries," said Recchi at the sidelines of an event, according to Reuters. He went on to add that the new targets for 2018 will be higher but they don't yet take into account Metroweb, the Milan-based provider with whom Telecom Italia is planning to roll out a fibre-optic network in 250 Italian cities.
