Tiscali to invest EUR 40 mln to bring 4G+ to 1 mln Italians

Friday 10 March 2017 | 09:31 CET | News
Italian operator Tiscali has announced plans to invest EUR 40 million to bring LTE-A technology, which it calls LTE Wireless Fibre to the Home (WFTTH), to 1 million customers by the end of 2018. The company said it will increase the number of LTE-A antennas to 500 by the end of this year, rising to 1,000 over the next 18 months. It intends to focus on digital divide areas because its competitors already have a strong presence in Italy's larger cities, said the company's CEO Riccardo Ruggiero.
