On March 3 2015, the Italian Government approved the Italian Strategy for Ultra-wideband with the aim of reducing Italy’s digital gap, by developing fixed and mobile telecoms infrastructure.
The goals that the Italian Strategy for Ultra-wideband have set for 2020 are as follows:
- Ultrafast broadband coverage (100 Mbps) for up to 85% of the population;
- Fast broadband coverage (30 Mbps and above) for the remainder of the population;
- Ultrafast broadband coverage (100 Mbps) for public offices and buildings (schools, hospitals, etc.), in areas of highest economic interest and population density, industrial areas, the main tourist areas and logistical hubs.
This strategy is also consistent with the European Commission’s new 2025 objectives which target widespread fibre availability to all residential users in addition to making FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) connections available to public administration facilities (schools, health centres, etc.) and production areas, thereby also enabling the development of 5G.
ENEL X has chosen to promote and support the digitalisation project by making the public lighting infrastructure owned by Enel Sole s.r.l. available on an equitable, transparent and non-discriminatory footing, to all operators authorised to supply telecoms networks and services which intend to develop a Fibre Optic Network on Italian territory.
