Open Fiber awarded third regional broadband tender

19 Dec 2018

Italian wholesale network operator Open Fiber has been awarded the third and final government tender for the rollout of broadband infrastructure in unserved and underserved areas of the country. The EUR103 million (USD117 million) contract was awarded by the government’s infrastructure agency Infratel and covers 882 localities in the regions of Calabria, Puglia and Sardinia. Open Fiber was the winner of the previous two tenders, which covered the remaining Italian regions. The tenders were held to ensure that high speed connections are deployed to those areas deemed to be not economically viable for commercial rollouts.
