Open Fiber is expanding its ultra-fast internet services across various Italian municipalities. The company's "1 Giga Italy Plan," backed by PNRR funds, is aimed at upgrading connectivity to Fiber To The Home (FTTH) technology in several regions, enabling lightning-fast internet speeds for citizens and businesses, according to the official release.
Cerveteri's 1 Giga Italy Plan
Open Fiber is set to deploy the "1 Giga Italy Plan" in Cerveteri, covering the entire area, including the historic centre and peripheral regions like Via del Sasso and Valcanneto. The project targets 3,663 homes and offices, bringing FTTH connectivity with speeds of up to 10 Gbps to the residents. According to Openfiber, the construction sites will initially focus on the first 1,668 in Cerveteri and later will be extended to Cerenova and Marina di Cerveteri.
Sacrofano and Serradifalco Embrace Ultra-Fast Internet
In addition to Cerveteri, Open Fiber's "1 Giga Italy Plan" reached Sacrofano and Serradifalco.
In Sacrofano, the FTTH cabling of 264 premises is underway, with the project extending to peripheral areas where Open Fiber's FTTH optical fibre has already reached over 600 offices and stores under the Ultra-Wideband Plan (BUL).
Meanwhile, Serradifalco has witnessed the completion of Open Fiber's network infrastructure, providing ultra-fast internet to 4,684 premises. A combination of FTTH and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) technologies ensures broad coverage in the municipality, with the FTTH connection reaching the interior of buildings and FWA technology catering to areas with lower population density.
Santa Maria Maggiore Joins the Ultra-Fast Internet Bandwagon
Open Fiber has also announced the successful implementation of its ultra-broadband connectivity service in Santa Maria Maggiore, with 3,027 premises now benefiting from the FTTH connection. According to the Open Fiber, over 14 Km of ultra-fast network was laid. In addition to the municipality, the hamlets of Crana and Buttogno were covered.
Open Fiber says this transition to FTTH will not only offer faster and more reliable internet but also contribute to eco-sustainability by reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.
