TIM extends Sicily FTTH network to Giarre

Friday 3 March 2017 | 10:33 CET | News
TIM (Telecom Italia) has announced the launch of fibre-optic services in the town of Giarre in the Catania province on the island of Sicily. The operator said its FTTH service is already available in around 7,000 homes, practically all of the town's population, allowing users to access the internet at speeds of up to 100 Mbps. Under the company's new business plan, TIM has pledged to invest some EUR 5 billion over the next three years on rolling out fibre-optic cables to reach 95 percent of the Italian population by 2019.
