TIM connects 3,000 underserved localities to FTTC network in 8 months

Thursday 12 November 2020 | 14:12 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) said it has activated fibre services in a total of 3,000 localities in underserved "white" areas in a timespan of just 8 months. The company switched on its FTTC network in another 287 areas without an operator present in October, passing the figure of 3,000 since March. As a result, residents in the digital divide areas can now access fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) services at speeds of up to 200 Mbps.
