Angri, August 2nd , 2021
FiberCop is launching in Angri the innovative cabling plan that will bring fiber optics to homes. The interventions for the realization of the new network worth two million euros, coordinated by TIM, will begin shortly in many areas of the city and the agreement signed with the municipal administration provides that the services will be made progressively available. The objective is to connect around 6,500 housing units at the conclusion of the plan.
The Campania city has been included in the national FiberCop coverage program, which aims to implement the secondary fiber access network in the black and gray areas of the country to develop FTTH (Fiber To The Home) solutions. The adopted model of ‘open’ co-investment provided for by the new European Code of Electronic Communications, guarantees all operators access to passive fiber optic services and advanced services, operating with maximum efficiency to protect people and the environment.
The work in Angri will be carried out in partnership with the municipal administration. In order to limit the discomfort to the citizens and to proceed quickly with the realization of the new network it will be used, where possible, already existing infrastructures, while the new excavations will be realized adopting innovative techniques with low environmental impact, with interventions on the road of about 10-15 centimeters.
The new super-fast network will accelerate the processes of digitalization in the area, to the benefit of citizens, businesses and public administration and to better meet the professional needs also related to smart working and distance learning; it will go from 200 megabits of the current network in FttCab technology that already covers 9,200 units of the municipality, to ultra-fast connections up to 1 Gigabit/s.
“The cabling intervention provided by Tim, which has included us among the cities in the national program coverage of FiberCop, will make navigation in our city more efficient and performing – says the Mayor of Angri, Cosimo Ferraioli. Through this opportunity, at no cost to municipal budget, we will be able to speed up the connection on the municipal territory, an improvement strongly felt at a time when the Covid has made us even more aware of the importance of using the network. For Angri it represents an extraordinary opportunity that we are happy to take, because using an ultra-fast network and in step with the times will allow everybody, citizens, enterprises and the Municipality of Angri itself, to face at best the challenges that await us”.
