Telecom Italia Expands Fiber to 22 New Cities

  • Telecom Italia
ROME, ITALY - Telecom Italia is moving ahead with its national ultra-broadband development program, as the company rolls out “Ultra Internet Fibra Ottica” services based on FTTCab (Fiber to the Cabinet) technology with speeds of 30 Mbps now available in an additional 22 cities.

Milan Gets Download Speeds of 100 Mbps

FTTH (Fiber to the Home) technology is being rolled out in Milan, offering download speeds of 100 Mbps and uploads at 10 Mbps, via fiber connections to the customer’s home or office that make it possible to access applications in real time and allow multiple users to enjoy HD multimedia content simultaneously. Milan’s new FTTH technology network runs alongside the FTTCab network. It will initially be available in 455,000 residential properties, before being extended to 564,000 by the end of 2015.

In addition to Milan, the service is now offered in the cities of Monza, Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Varese, Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Genoa, Florence, Pisa, Prato, Ancona, Bari, Taranto, Palermo, Brindisi and Catanzaro. Following last December’s initial rollout in Rome, Turin and Naples, Telecom Italia’s “Ultra Internet Fibra Ottica” package for consumers and businesses is now available in twenty-five Italian cities. Residential and business customers can send and receive data at higher speeds and greater reliability than over legacy systems.

Major Boost to National NGAN Infrastructure Development
The extension of new ultra-broadband services is the result of the major impetus Telecom Italia has given its proprietary NGAN (Next Generation Access Network) development scheme. Fiber-optic infrastructure construction work has already begun in 33 Italian cities, connecting up a total of 2.8 million properties so far. The target is to reach 125 cities by the end of 2015, corresponding to coverage of around 8 million properties (roughly 35 percent of the landline population).

Eight More Cities in the Fiber Pipeline
In addition to the 25 cities where the service is already up and running, cable laying is at an advanced stage in Trieste, Treviso, Udine, Forlì, Pescara, Leghorn, Perugia and Catania, where new packages are soon to be rolled out.
