Telecom Italia’s FiberCop secures new partner

Telecom italia (TIM Group) fibre infrastructure operator FiberCop has signed an agreement with internet service provider Netoip that will see the fibre-to-the-home access market developed through Netoip’s involvement in the FiberCop network co-investment project.

On the basis of the agreement, Netoip will use the fibre optic secondary access network up to FiberCop’s homes to develop FTTH in nine municipalities in Marche and in other municipalities in the regions of Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia.

TIM said that Netoip’s endorsement of the co-investment offer – which the TIM Group is implementing through FiberCop – follows that of other operators and confirms the validity of its investment plan, which is designed ensure FTTH coverage for 75% of the country’s undercovered areas by 2025.

The telco said that the agreement reached confirms the effectiveness of its co-investment model, which allows interested operators to participate in the deployment of optical fibre in Italy in an infrastructure competition framework.

It said that the model speeds up the process of overcoming the digital divide in the country and allows households and businesses to choose ultrabroadband connections with speeds of over 1Gps per second.
