24 April 2018Press releases

Operators sign partnership to offer ultrabroadband connectivity and services to all Municipalities covered by Open Fiber and extend reach of their networks

Open Fiber and Retelit have signed a commercial agreement to extend their infrastructure across the country, with the goal of offering customers ultrabroadband connectivity and services based entirely on the fiber network as far as the customer’s home. Open Fiber will offer to Retelit - with a particular focus on the Business segment - access to its FTTH (Fiber To The Home) network, while Retelit will make available its infrastructure and thus allow Open Fiber to maximise reuse of existing infrastructure in building its national network. The two companies can therefore optimise - in the 271 cities covered by Open Fiber’s strategic plan in clusters A and B - their respective networks, building therefore more extensive national coverage and allowing customers to benefit from a more comprehensive ultrabroadband network. Elisabetta Ripa, Chief Executive Officer of Open Fiber, stated: “The agreement with Retelit allows us to further extend, particularly for the Business segment, our programme for the development of the FTTH network which we are building, leveraging on Retelit’s potential in terms of business with enterprises”. “The partnership with Open Fiber is reflective of the major transformation in train in Italy and concerning the new ICT frontiers: adequate infrastructure and comprehensive and reliable networks are required, supporting new technological trends, including the development of IoT, Artificial Intelligence and Mobile Payments”, stated Dario Pardi, Chairman of Retelit. “The development strategy for the Open Fiber network responds concretely to these needs and will surely allow us to address as best as possible our business services target market.
