TI, Fastweb sign joint broadband technology test deal

Tuesday 5 May 2015 | 11:04 CET | News
Telecom Italia has signed a memorandum of understanding with broadband operator Fastweb to begin testing fibre-and-copper technology that boosts internet connections to stable speeds of 100 Mbps, reports Il Sole 24 Ore. The agreement runs until December 2016 and the trials will also involve Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei. According to the report, the aim is to demonstrate that Enhanced VDSL (E-VDSL) technology can be used by operators to overcome many obstacles, primarily economic but also related to line saturation in cabinets, with a view to meeting the objectives of the European Digital Agenda
