Monday 18 September 2017 | 14:14 CET | News

The Open Fiber wholesale-only venture of Italian utility Enel and state lender CDP has announced a deal with Wind Tre to bring fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services to a total of 271 cities all over the country, covering some 60 percent of the Italian population. The commercial partnership, valid until 2024, will see Wind Tre’s fixed network customers gradually migrating to Open Fiber’s network, set to offer internet access at symmetric speeds of up to 1 Gbps (download and upload) in 10 million homes and offices.

The companies are already providing gigabit FTTH services in 13 Italian cities, including Palermo, Perugia, Cagliari, Venice, Padua, Catania, Naples and Genoa, with the expanded deal covering another 258 localities in so-called clusters A and B. Open Fiber will also bring FTTH to 9.6 million premises in digital divide areas all over the country by 2022 after being awarded two tenders to build and operate an Italian national high-speed broadband network in 6,753 localities covering 16 regions.
