(Reuters) - Italy’s deputy prime minister Luigi di Maio said on Sunday the government was working on establishing conditions to create a single operator in the country for internet broadband.
“We are working to set the conditions in order to create a single player to distribute internet and broadband,” Di Maio, who also doubles as Industry Minister, said in an interview with la7 television.
He did not give details but said that to create “a new digital highway” the government would set up talks with all involved players.
“I believe that the dossier must be closed by the end of the year,” Di Maio said.
