FiberCop is implementing a major roll-out plan of ultra-fast fiber-optic network over a very significant number of Italian municipalities
ITALIAN MUNICIPALITIES REACHED BY OPTICAL NETWORK
The plan is consistent with the requirements expressed by the European Commission about the quality of Public Administration in its 192 territories:
Despite being a wholesale-only operator, Fibercop, through its plan, wants to support the digital development plan of local administrations, in a logic of partnership and support.

A digitized local government, in all its ramifications (Education, Health, Delivery services to citizens, etc.) benefits significantly in economic and organizational terms, but above all benefits the entire community to which that administration is addressed.
For this and many other reasons, Fibercop will always take care of the needs of the communities in which it will have to operate in the coming years.
Fiber optics is a new generation technology that transmits data at very high speed, offering many advantages:
