Fastweb and Iliad have signed a agreement destined to change the optical fiber market in Italy. The two companies, in fact, form a partnership. Fastweb will provide Iliad with ultra-broadband connectivity in wholesale mode on the fiber optic network Fiber to the Home, allowing Iliad customers to be able to count on a high-speed connection for their home.
