TIM connects 2,700 communities with fibre

5 Oct 2020

Telecom Italia (TIM) says it has deployed fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) technology in around 2,700 municipalities since March this year, many of which are in underserved rural areas. The telco says its ultrabroadband services are currently available in more than 4,700 municipalities nationwide and by the end of this year it wants to have FTTC available on 90% of its fixed network. Meanwhile, the firm is also using fixed-wireless equipment to provide ultrabroadband access to outlying areas where it is uneconomic to roll out fibre networks.
