TIM could be European hub for operators - Patuano

Monday 18 January 2016 | 15:12 CET | News
Rather than being a prey for foreign operators, Telecom Italia (TIM) has the possibility of becoming a magnet around which to create a large Europe-wide telecoms group, according to CEO Marco Patuano. "TIM is healthy and has the potential of becoming a unifying hub for mid-sized operators in Europe, of which there are around a hundred," Patuano told La Repubblica. He also said the partnership with Metroweb to roll out a fibre-optic network in 250-300 Italian cities will depend on whether it creates conflicts with regulators and competing operators.
