Telecom Italia SpA announced that it is moving ahead with its national ultra-broadband development programme, as the Company rolls out Ultra Internet Fibra Ottica services based on FTTCab (Fiber To The Cabinet) technology with speeds of 30 Megabits per second available in an additional 22 cities. FTTH (Fiber to the Home) technology is being rolled out in Milan, offering download speeds of 100 Megabits per second and uploads at 10 Megabits per second, via fiber connections to the customer’s home or office that make it possible to access applications in real time and allow multiple users to enjoy HD multimedia content simultaneously.

It will initially be available in around 455 thousand residential properties, before being extended to 564 thousand by the end of 2015. In addition to Milan, the service is offered in the cities of Monza, Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Varese, Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Genoa, Florence, Pisa, Prato, Ancona, Bari, Taranto, Palermo, Brindisi and Catanzaro.
