Telecom Italia (TIM) has announced a total investment of around EUR 1 million to activate a fibre-optic and 4G network in the city of Crema in the northern Lombardy region. The FTTC service has already been activated in over 11,000 households after 22 kilometres of cable were rolled out to connect 60 street cabinets, rising to 65 by the end of the year. Customers in the connected areas can now access the internet at speeds of up to 100 Mbps. TIM recently revealed that it now expects to bring fibre-optic technology to 95 percent of the Italian population by mid-2018.
