Telecom Italia has announced that the Sicilian city of Siracusa now boasts a fully operational fibre-optic and 4G network following an investment of around EUR 5 million. The operator used non-invasive, low-impact digging techniques to roll out around 79 km of fibre-optic cables to connect 33,000 households, about 65 percent of the population, providing customers with internet access at speeds of up to 50 Mbps. In addition, the operator's 4G services are now available to 99 percent of the population thanks to the installation of 14 base stations.
