29 Sep 2014

Italian internet service provider (ISP) FastWeb has announced plans to extend its fibre-to-the-x (FTTx) network to 100 new cities by the end of 2016. The new deployment schedule will see fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) services extended to a footprint encompassing around 5.5 million households, with the telco’s fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network reaching a further two million homes. The company currently presides over a fibre subscriber base of around 450,000, of which 300,000 are FTTH customers and 150,000 are FTTC users. The first 13,000 cabinets will be connected by the end of 2014, while CAPEX for 2015 has been set at EUR500 million (USD634.1 million).
