FastWeb, Eutelsat partnership

13 Nov 2008

Fixed line operator FastWeb will extend its broadband coverage across Italy in an industrial alliance with French satellite company Eutelsat Communications. FastWeb said in a statement, ‘Thanks to the satellite connectivity provided by Eutelsat, broadband access will in future be available to companies, local governments and homes located in areas which were previously impossible to reach.’ In June FastWeb reached an agreement with Telecom Italia to share access to each other’s networks and cooperate in building a new generation network with enhanced broadband capacity to avoid duplication in infrastructure buildout.
