The process of shutdown of TIM’s copper network. The Mattarello plant, in fact, will be the first in Italy to be fully wired in fibra con tecnologia Fiber to the home (FTTH) and will allow all homes and offices served (about 2,000 lines) connections up to 1 GB (also from other operators) with a process that will take place progressively, on the basis of customer subscriptions.
This announcement was made on the occasion of the signing of the digital cooperation agreement which sets the goal, we read in a note, of “develop a virtuous model of collaboration between institutions, businesses and associations” to accelerate digitization and give further impetus to economic growth by encouraging the adoption of the best technologies by citizens, businesses and the Public Administration itself, which are also the cornerstones of the recent Recovery Plan.
The agreement aims to inform citizens and promote in the community the benefits deriving from the adoption of new technologies, which allow a significant increase in the quality of the service. Furthermore, the Municipality of Trento recognizes this initiative as “suitable to further promote the Smart City“, on which it has already made significant investments, developing a series of specific initiatives.
This is the comment by Luigi Gubitosi, CEO of TIM:
With the start of the copper network shutdown process, we begin to write a new chapter in the history of telecommunications in Italy, confirming our commitment to wanting to be an integral part of the country’s innovation and digitization process. We therefore start from Trento, an Italian municipality of excellence, to transfer, on a voluntary basis, our customers to the new ultra-fast fiber networks. We are convinced that with the consolidation of this process, which will gradually affect the entire national territory, we will accelerate the process of digitization of citizens, businesses and the Public Administration, at the same time favoring the development of those digital skills necessary to return to growth both in Italy than internationally.
TIM has launched a program for FTTH technology cabling also in other cities of Trentino: this year the plan will involve Rovereto, Pinzolo, Canazei, Tre Ville, Pergine Valsugana, Riva del Garda and, in 2022, Isera and Volano .
