TIM signs fibre rollout deal with utility A2A - report

Thursday 13 April 2017 | 15:09 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) has signed an agreement to use the pipe infrastructure of regional utility A2A to roll out fibre-optic cables in Milan, according to two unnamed sources cited by Reuters. Earlier Italian press reports hinted at the deal, with La Repubblica indicating that TIM's plans to bring FTTH services to outlying districts of Milan cover seven districts already served by the Open Fiber venture of utility giant Enel. One of the sources added that TIM had also held talks with Rome-based utility Acea and Bologna's Hera.
