Tuesday 8 November 2016 | 09:49 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) is increasing its fibre-optic broadband network rollout targets with a view to covering all of the country as soon as possible. In a conference call on the company's third-quarter results, CEO Flavio Cattaneo said the aim is now to cover 60 percent of the Italian territory by the end of the year, compared to the previous forecast of 56 percent, and 80 percent by the end of 2017, up from the previous estimation of 75 percent. The target for fixed NGN customers has also been revised up by 10 percent to 5.5 million by 2018 from the previous 5 million.
