TISCALI Deploys FTTH in Sardinia with ZTE

Tiscali signed a strategic framework agreement with ZTE for the deployment of an FTTH network in Sardinia. The contract was signed in the presence of the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, who is visiting Italy.

In the first phase of the project, the FTTH deployment will leverage ongoing work for the local gas network in the extended Cagliari area. This will include over 50 thousand lines of LLU (Local Loop unbundling) coverage.
