TIM Group’s majority-owned infrastructure company FiberCop and mobile operator Iliad Italia have signed an agreement to further develop the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) access market, under which Iliad will participate in the co-investment project on the network of FiberCop. A press releases states that the agreement confirms Iliad’s commitment to making investments in order to contribute to Italy’s digitisation – speeding up the switch of customers from copper to fibre – and to offer high quality connectivity with simple and transparent offers. TIM will provide Iliad access to its primary fibre network. No financial details of the agreement were disclosed.
The deal follows FiberCop’s co-investment tie-ups with other Italian operators including Fastweb and Tiscali (the latter agreement in the process of being finalised).
