Italy’s EOLO selects Intracom for five-year wireless broadband rollout

21 Apr 2017

Athens-based wireless solutions vendor Intracom Telecom has been selected to provide equipment for a five-year network rollout by Italian wireless broadband operator EOLO. Intracom will supply its point-to-multipoint WiBAS-Connect solution for EOLO’s network deployment, which will target residential and business users in suburban and rural areas of Italy. EOLO is looking to reach ‘several hundred thousand’ premises that are difficult to reach with fixed DSL and fibre connections, providing internet access at up to 100Mbps. The WiBAS-Connect equipment operates in the 28GHz band, for which EOLO was recently awarded a licence by the Italian government.
